All Bluefield College students, faculty, and staff may use the resources and services of Easley Library whenever it is open.
Community patrons may use the library when it is open, but must sign in at the circulation desk when first entering if requested to do so. Computers and the wireless network are available to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests of the college.
A room was set aside for the library in Lansdell Hall when the college first opened in 1922. When Shott Hall was originally built, one side of the dining hall was used as the library. It remained in that area until the current library building was completed in 1956.
Easley Library was named in memory of Frank Smoot Easley and David Milton Easley, both of whom served on the Board of Trustees. A three-story west wing was constructed in 1978. Then in 2007, the library was remodeled, receiving updated carpeting, lighting, comfortable reading area furniture, and new computer workstations. The three-story building consists of a main entrance level, a mezzanine/second floor, and a basement or ground level, which houses the School of Education.
As an integral part of the educational program at Bluefield College, the library provides instructional resources, services, and facilities to the campus community and access to resources and services to off-campus faculty and students. The primary purpose of Easley Library is to provide support for the educational goals of the college, as stated in the mission and catalog of the college, by:
The library has 14 computers on the main level and two standing computer carrels on the mezzanine for searching the online catalog. Wireless Internet access is also available throughout the library.
A copy machine is located in the periodicals area on the main level of the library.
The multimedia lab is located on the main level. There is a computer with two monitors, scanner, Photoshop printer, and a television with a combination VCR/DVD player. The computer has software for creating multimedia presentations.
Two printers are available for students, faculty, and staff to use. One printer is actually a component of the Canon copier. There is also a color printer available in the multimedia lab.
