Message from the Librarian

The T.A. Marryshow Community College Library is located within the Resource Center of the college. It houses more than twelve thousand books and approximately two hundred periodicals. The books are arranged according to the Dewey Decimal Classification System. The main library is found on the Tanteen Campus, but there are satellite libraries at Six Roads Campus in Carriacou and in the Nursing School at the National Stadium.We have been working diligently to keep abreast of technology and to provide as many resources and services as possible in order to assist students in the quest to broaden their horizons. Any student can reach the top with a little patience and a lot of diligence. We encourage students to become familiar with the library, to know what services it offers, what resources are available and how to locate materials. Do not hesitate to ask us for help.
