EPCC Hosts Texas State Librarian at Jenna Welch and Laura Bush Community Library

El Paso Community College’s (EPCC) Jenna Welch and Laura Bush Community Library on the Northwest campus hosted Mark Smith, State Librarian from the Texas State Library and Archive Commission (TSLAC).

“This is an outstanding library in its own right, but I am really excited about the cooperative project with the El Paso Public Library,” Mark Smith, Texas State Librarian said. “The library is an anchor to the community, it is a technology center where kids can progress to community college and beyond.”

Being the only library in a 10-mile radius, the Jenna Welch and Laura Bush Community Library offers educational services and community programs such as Summer Books and Beyond, Toddler Tech, physical fitness and citizenship classes.

On this first-ever visit by a Texas State Librarian to El Paso, Smith learned about the partnership between EPCC, the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and the El Paso Library System in offering services not just to EPCC students, but to the surrounding community.

Opened in 2003, the library was named for Jenna Welch, a former Canutillo resident, and her daughter Former First Lady, Laura Bush. The mother and daughter have visited the library sharing their love of books and family reading.
