Recently, a patron asked how the TCC libraries got their names. The Northwest Campus Walsh Library is named for F. Howard and Mary D. Walsh. On February 7, 1969, the Walsh family donated 193 acres to Tarrant County Junior College to construct a Northwest Campus. Mr. Walsh stated, “We’re just happy to furnish the land in that area and we think it will be a great boon to the Northwest quadrant of the city” (Dromgoole). Groundbreaking took place on February 14, 1973, and the campus formally opened in 1976.

On Wednesday, 29th November the Walsh Library was visited by Alisa Tomlinson to help us celebrate Native American Heritage month. The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native peoples.
Students in our library were fortunate enough to relax as they studied to the soothing music she played. Alisa was also kind enough to field many questions from students about her flutes, the music she played, and the significance of the music in Native American Culture.
