Welcome to Don C. Locke Library


Renovations to the Locke Library are still ongoing. Unfortunately, the noise and smells currently present in the building are part of this process. Please take these conditions into account while using the library during this period. For those who wish a less hectic study space, an additional computer lab is available on campus in the Haynes Building. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

We are celebrating the 60th anniversary of A-B Tech this academic year - 2019-2020 - and will be featuring highlights and photos each month from the College’s history as part of the celebration. This month's focus is on our very beginning. Read all about it here:

Happy 60th Anniversary, A-B Tech
