Leonard H. Timmerman Library

Named after a founding father and former director of Lake Area Technical College, the Leonard H. Timmerman Library is our students’ go-to place for resources and educational services. Whether a student needs a quiet place to study, tutoring services, research materials, or a place to collaborate projects with other students, the library has it all.

The library’s collection of resources includes various online databases, ebooks, streaming educational videos, books, reference materials, magazines, journals and newspapers. Our full-time staff is available to assist students with research questions. Other services available through the library include interlibrary loan, computer access, printers, photocopier, collaborative workstations, and scanners. E-readers and iPads are available for loan.

The library, located in room 210 of the Main Building, supports both collaborative and individual study. The space also includes three study rooms students can use as quiet individual study spaces or as places to meet and work in groups. Hours are subject to change. If the school is closed due to weather or holidays, the library will also be closed. Summer hours will vary.
