Introducing: Question of the Week

At Meriam Library, we love to discover new information. While we have plenty of peer-reviewed articles and scholarly research on hand, we also want answers to questions such as:

  • If you could go back in time, which book would you give your younger self?
  • What do you need help with the most at the library?
  • And, what's the most you've spent on textbooks in one semester?

That last question is now up on our new Question of the Week whiteboard. Come check it out on the 2nd floor of the library, next to the elevators.

Ever wonder how many people visit the library in a year (1,148,865),  or how many computers we have (187) or how many group study rooms (30) or participants in library instruction (4,060) or where we borrow inter library materials (see world map on display).  All this and more currently on display on the second floor in CANDY form. Us library peeps here to help you succeed at Chico State.

All Gender Restroom


Meriam Library is committed to inclusion.  We now have two all gender restrooms located on the third floor, North of the elevator.


Treat Yo' Self to silence

Meriam Library Third Floor is designated for silent solitary study or relaxation. We added some signage to help maintain the peace and quiet.  Go on, indulge in the silence.
