University Libraries Showcase Original Shakespeare Folios

Posted on 04.17.16

In commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare (1564-1616), the CSUEB University Libraries are displaying two rare original copies of Shakespeare plays taken from the folio editions of his work issued shortly after his death. On display on the Upper Mall of the Hayward Campus Library are a copy of Twelfth Night, Or What You Will, taken from the second folio of 1632 and a copy of Measure For Measure taken from the fourth folio of 1685.

We invite you to take this unique opportunity to view these rare, original 17th century editions of the work of William Shakespeare – the “Bard of Avon” and possibly the greatest writer in the English language – in their display case in the Library through the end of May 2016.

New Library Exhibit Showcases Young Adult Literature

Posted on 03.27.16


You may have heard the term Young Adult Literature – sometimes simply called YA.

Did you know that YA is an especially hot market right now, riding a veritable renaissance of novels and stories aimed at young adult readers? It is having a profound effect in Hollywood as well, with movies like The Hunger Games, the Divergent Trilogy, and even the Harry Potter films.

Come to the CSUEB Library this Spring and Summer Quarters to discover just how influential and widespread this trend is, what it means, and how it began.

The Young Adult (YA) Literature Exhibit will be up until the first week of September 2016.
