The Wallace Community College-Dothan (WCCD) Learning Resources Centers System (LRC) and theDothan Houston County Library System (DHCLS) recently renewed their Library Cooperative Agreement, allowing both facilities to provide reciprocal library privileges to patrons, students, staff and faculty of each institution.

As a result of the Library Cooperative Agreement, patrons of DHCLS and WCCD students, faculty and staff are granted access to the resources and services provided by each library through joint user status and borrowing privileges. This renewal will begin on September 1, 2022 and will be in effect for two years.

“Wallace Community College is fortunate to have the support of the local community, including that of the Dothan Houston County Library System,” said A.P. Hoffman, WCCD LRC System Director. “The cooperative agreement is beneficial to patrons of Dothan Houston County Library and to students of Wallace Community College in that it enhances the resources and services available to both groups of library users. It is a relationship for which Wallace Community College is most appreciative.”

“We welcome any opportunity to work together with our local education partners, whether they serve preschoolers, school-age children, or college-age students,” stated Chris Warren, DHCLS Library Director. “This cooperative agreement between DHCLS and WCCD makes sense and will only enhance our ability to support academic achievement, to encourage people to learn and to be curious, and to help people of all ages be successful in school and in life.”

The WCCD LRC System provides a current collection of resources and services to faculty, staff, and students to support college and lifelong learning. The LRC collection includes approximately 40,000 bound volumes, 170 periodical titles, 3,000 media software items, and various electronic bibliographic databases including the Alabama Virtual Library. The LRC also has computers, photocopiers, and other technologies available for student use. These resources and services are provided at the Dothan and Eufaula locations, and accessible online at
