Last Updated:  5/02/2022


Renovated J. Burton Vasche Library Building Re-Opened Fall 2021

After the two-year building renovation and offering crucial library services in the Library Annex and virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University Library has returned to the newly renovated library building for fall semester 2021. Library Services and library partners (Disability Resource Services (DRS), Office of Information Technology (OIT) help desks, Warrior Cross Cultural Center, Academic Success Center, and Learning Commons) began their services in the beautiful library building in fall 2021.

COVID-19 safety measures remain in effect in compliance with State, County, and University guidelines. Contact Library Circulation Desk via email Questions@library.csustan.edu or by phone 209-667-3234, if you have questions related to library hours and services.
