About the Libraries

Publicly Reservable Spaces

The Cal State East Bay Libraries are committed to creating a welcoming, safe, inspiring, and engaging learning environment in the CORE Building. There are several spaces in the CORE that can be reserved by Cal State East Bay community members for teaching, learning, and community building.

To maximize use of library facilities by Cal State East Bay students, faculty, and staff regularly-scheduled meetings (daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly), regularly-scheduled class sessions, and reservations from non-East Bay persons or groups, will not be approved.

All events held in Library facilities are subject to approval by the Dean of Libraries or designee. The Library reserves the right to cancel a reservation in order to maximize use of the facilities and will notify the sponsor if cancellation is necessary.

Technical Note

Unfortunately, the Audio Visual equipment in the large rooms in the CORE is not yet fully installed. We expect the equipment to be ready for use early in October.

Send reservation requests directly to Dean, John Wenzler, well in advance of the event. Because the area is used for collaborative study when not reserved for events, advanced notice is required to prepare for events. For additional information, contact john.wenzler@csueastbay.edu
