Stay open longer! Good news, the library will be open a few additional hours this weekend—closing at 9:45pm on both Friday and Saturday, May 13 & 14. The first floor Computer Lab & The Grove will continue to be open until 2am through Finals Week. We are frequently re-evaluating library hours based on factors such as building usage and late night safety concerns.
New carpet on the 3rd floor, it’s really old!! We agree that the carpet on the 3rd Floor needs to be replaced and we are working on securing funding for this project.
Change the graphics in the elevators. The photography and artwork featured in the elevators were the work of Chico State students and the plan has been to occasionally rotate them with new slides. In the near future, we’ll work with the Department of Art and Art History to identify new pieces to feature in the elevators.
Snacks & solo seat please. Our long term plans include adding a coffee shop/café to the library but in the meantime, some snacks can be purchased in vending machines located on the First Floor (in The Grove) and on the Fourth Floor (near the restrooms). For individual seating, we do have several dozen study carrels on Third Floor but we hope to replace these soon with newer furniture with integrated power outlets.
Fix the charging stations. Currently, two of the three charging stations are functioning—one is located in The Grove on first floor, and the other is on the Fourth Floor near room 406. We’ve replaced several cables recently so hopefully one of these stations will meet your needs. The third station, usually located on 2nd Floor at the top of the main lobby stairs, will be back in service within a couple of weeks. We hope to add at least one additional charging station next semester.
