The Libraries would like to thank everyone who took the time to complete the Library Building Renovation Survey in January. We are going through each and every response to help us learn how we can continue to improve the library to best meet the needs of East Bay students.
Some of the suggested improvements from the survey are already here! Did you know that you can print wirelessly from your laptop in the library, access software needed for your classes on the computers, or check out headphones at the Media Resources and Reserves desk?
There are some really big improvements coming to the Hayward campus library this summer — we will be adding a new entrance for a 24-hour study space as well as adding more outlets to meet your device charging needs.
We are always open to your suggestions for additional improvements! You can submit your suggestions online or through the suggestion boxes found in the Libraries.

Join us on Thursday, May 19th at Noon in the Biella Room for a book talk with Dr. Bridget Ford as she introduces us to her new book, Bonds of Union. In this talk, Dr. Ford will seek to show that the United States has a longer, deeper history of imagining an inclusive society than we typically think.

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.

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.
Check out the complete LibGuide for this exhibit here.
