Both the libraries at NICC, Macy Campus and Santee Campus, are willing and able to help you find a book, proofread a college paper, or find something online. The library is currently being automated with Follett Destiny software to find what you need right away and to keep track of your checkouts. A suggestion for a good read would be The Boy in the Suitcase by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis. The main character, Nina Borg, volunteers to do a favor for a friend and finds herself with a suitcase that has a three-year-old boy inside. Who is he? Where does he belong? Who stole him? Why? Don’t forget the libraries are not just for college students, they are also community libraries. Come on in and see what we have to offer!
