  • library instruction
  • print and online collections
  • small and large-group study rooms
  • provision of mobile audiovisual equipment

Library History

The South Lake campus opened in Clermont on September 29, 1999. All campus functions operated from a multi-purpose building. This building initially served LSCC students, faculty and staff. The large classroom-sized space that was designated for library use was quickly outgrown.

The library was expanded in 2003 to encompass an adjoining classroom and computer lab. See the libraries' history page for more information about the history of the South Lake campus library.

In 2007, planning began for the development of a joint-use library to serve the College, UCF students, faculty and staff as well as the Lake County Library System. The new 50,000 square foot facility, which opened August 17, 2009, retains the name of the Cooper Memorial Library, in commemoration of Clermont's first public library.

In addtion to library services, the library facility houses a college/university bookstore, cafe, public meeting rooms, and three general classrooms. Community residents have access to full library services, including general access to computers, a 6,000 square foot children's section and a separate area for teenagers.
