The present Library of Pasadena City College is a direct descendant of the Library of Pasadena High School. This Library was organized on a formal basis in about 1906. Pasadena Junior College separated from the High School in 1924.
From those humble beginnings, the Shatford Library now has a modern multi-million dollar structure and a staff of eight certificated librarians and nine classified staff, plus numerous part-timers and a large student staff.
As of July 1, 2001, Shatford Library's holdings were 133,024 volumes in the general book collection, over 300 periodical subscriptions (plus over two thousand titles in electronic databases) 7,338 audiocassettes, 1,019 paperbacks, 661 CDs and software, 404 volumes in the Special Services collection, and 1,186 videocassettes.
