Library Legacy


Welcome to the Trenholm State Community College Virtual Library for Online Learners


The library program plays an integral role in the attainment of the objectives of H. Councill Trenholm State Community College. These objectives are primarily concerned with providing Montgomery and surrounding communities with a quality education.

The mission of the library is to offer quality learning and information resources that support the College’s educational programs and to help students become independent, lifelong learners.

Because of rapid technological changes, students must be committed to meeting these challenges by learning how to use available resources to access the information necessary for their matriculation.
