Fall 2021/Return to Renovated Library

Last Updated: 11/18/2021


August & Fall 2021 – from Library Annex to Renovated Library Building

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. Library Services and library partners (Disability Resource Services (DRS), Office of Information Technology OIT help desks, Warrior Cross Cultural Center, Student Success Center, and Learning Common) will begin their services in the beautiful library building in fall 2021.

Post-renovation work (such as installation of late coming furniture and re-shelving of library materials returning from remote storage) will continue to take place throughout the fall semester. COVID-19 safety measures are fully in place in compliance with State, County & University guidelines.

Contact Library Circulation via email Questions@library.csustan.edu or by phone 209-667-3234 (M-F 8:00 am-10:00 pm), if you have questions related to library hours and services. The Library Circulation Desk is located on the first floor of the Library Building and staffed during library open hours (Monday-Friday 8:00 am-10:00 pm).
