Resource Centre

The Western Cape College Resource Centre is located at the Weipa Campus, and is a modern, accessible learning space for students of all year levels. The library is open daily for access to physical and online resources, as well as classroom spaces for lessons and study students.

The Resource Centre aims to encourage all students to develop an enjoyment for reading. It also promotes the life-long learning skill of independent learning through research and information literacy.
