The Library Associates rely on community support to ensure that the colleges Library is well equipped with up-to-date resources. The funds raised help to purchase books, reading, and high-quality library resources and services at College of the Canyons through memberships and fundraising activities. During the past year, funds were used to purchase books for the One Book, One City program and provided support for expanding academic programs such as Radio, Television, Film Production and the performing arts.
Since this years event is being supported by the Hotel and Restaurant Management program, a portion of the revenue from this event will be provided to that program to help fund the food and wine classes taught at the college.
