Mission

The American River College Library is part of a dynamic campus community that fosters and connects students, faculty, and staff with resources that encourage intellectual, personal, and cultural development. We are dedicated to our college’s mission, values, and commitment to social justice and equity. We want exhibitions and displays to support both the library’s mission and efforts to be a safe place where all are welcome.

The Facilities

The ARC Library’s central stairwell has three floors of wall mounted display area, called The Stairwell Gallery. The main floor of the library also has a built-in locked display case.

Policy

The Stairwell Gallery and the display case on the first floor of the library are highly trafficked areas, therefore, if materials or themes do not support the Library Mission, the ARC Librarians reserve the right to not display any or all materials.

For questions about the Stairwell Gallery and/or the display case, to schedule a exhibition and/or display, or to turn in signed forms, please contact Martee Squire at squirem@arc.losrios.edu.
