The new Learning Resource Center replaces an outdated library with a state-of-the-art facility that is the pride of the JCC campus.  The building features a large, high bay stack room and adjacent  two-story wing with classrooms, computer lab, study rooms and a distance learning suite.  Long span fabricated steel trusses span the stack room and are exposed to view.  The two-story wing features a steel framed central stair.

This project received LEED Silver Certification.
