About The Walter A. Brower Library
The Walter A. Brower Library has evolved as Berkeley College has grown and now serves the college in ways never imagined when it was dedicated to Walter A. Brower in 1981. Dr. Brower is a Trustee Emeritus who served on the Board of Trustees of Berkeley's Woodland Park and Westchester Campuses for many years.
In September of 2014, The Walter A, Brower Library moved to a new location in the newly renovated Renaissance Hall. The state-of-the art library was designed to provide flexible, functional and desirable learning spaces. The main floor features a variety of seating styles that allow students to decide what type of social interaction they seek. The area features group work booths and an 8 seat modular lounge for study groups as well as 32 individual study tables.
The main floor of the library also features 15 desktop PCs connected to two black & white and one color printer. A multimedia area is also available for educational and entertainment DVDs.
The lower level of the library houses the bulk of the libraries' 50,000 volume collection covering every subject offered by Berkeley College. Students can also work in groups or individually using one of the study tables in the lower level.
The lower level houses the print collection in a high-density mobile shelving system with additional study table seating, look-up station and printer.
