Mission Statement

The William M. Brish Library is committed to utilizing the latest technology to provide services and resources, both on and off campus, to meet the academic and professional needs of all members of the college community. The library subscribes to a variety of electronic resources and offers a strong core collection of physical materials that fully supports the college’s programs and curriculum. In support of student retention, librarians work to empower students to successfully locate and evaluate scholarly information by providing individual and group instruction, as well as point-of-need reference assistance. The library maintains a calm, welcoming environment that fosters student success.


The Brish Library is on the second floor of the Learning Resource Center (LRC) in the middle of campus. Hagerstown Community College is located southeast of Hagerstown on 316 acres at 11400 Robinwood Drive. The College may be reached from U.S. 40 and from Maryland Route 64. The campus is approximately 2.5 miles from downtown Hagerstown and is easily accessible from Interstates 81 and 70.
