Center for Worker Education Library

City College Downtown Satellite Campus

Center for Worker Education (CWE) Library

The library at City College Downtown's Center for Worker Education (CWE) is an award winning library service for CWE students.  It specializes in rapid response and detailed one-on-one assistance to students. The Center was founded in 1981 by organized labor and City College and was designed to serve working adults by having classes in the evenings and on Saturdays to fit worker's schedules. The ethos of the Center is pro-worker, pro-feminism and social justice for all. The students are 80% female and 80% are from minority populations. The full time library service started in 2007.
