In the Library


Your Helena College Library is a wonderful place for quiet study and research. Five study tables, two laptop tables, eleven carrels, ten easy chairs and five computers for student use await your arrival.

All links to services and resources in the menu on the left are available in the library Monday through Friday during open hours and most are available off-campus 24/7. We are happy to help you by email, chat or telephone. Leave an email message at any time and we will respond on the next business day.
