Textbook Loans Have Come To The Library!

In an exciting new twist Meriam Library has begun obtaining textbooks for student use. With funding from a Student Learning Fee Grant, Meriam Library is providing textbooks for student use through Course Reserve. Textbooks can be checked out at four hour intervals. Because of the vast amount courses offered at CSU, Chico, textbooks could not be obtained for all of them. Using the criteria of high enrollment and high drop/fail/withdraw rates, Meriam Library decided on 40 courses to which they would obtain textbooks (textbook availability was also a factor, along with online access codes).

Destress Fest in the Library

Finals have you stressed? We got you! Meriam Library will once again offer Destress Fest to help you relax and recharge during the last weeks of the semester. Our goal is to offer a welcome diversion, allowing you to chill, take a break and disengage from studying for a few minutes.

There will be a variety of fun activities including puzzles, stickers, crafts, buttons, crayons and coloring pages as well as study supplies, and snacks, while supplies last.
