Area elected officials to join faculty, staff and administrators attend ceremonies marking the official grand opening of the new, six-story building on theÂ Collegeâ€™s Journal Square campus.
On September 29th, 2014 Congressman Albio Sires, Hudson County Executive Thomas A. DeGise, and other elected officials and community leaders gathered with the Trustees, students, faculty, staff, and administration of Hudson County Community College (HCCC) for the official dedication of the Collegeâ€™s new Library Building.
The ribbon-cutting ceremonies took place inside the six-story, multifunctional structure, which is located at 71 Sip Avenue on the Collegeâ€™s Journal Square Campus in Jersey City. The 112,000 square-foot building is just steps away from the Journal Square PATH Transit Station.
Dr. Glen Gabert, President of HCCC, said the Library Building was designed to serve as a center of knowledge and learning, and to promote a sense of community and connectedness for students, faculty, staff, and all who live and work in Hudson County.
