Sacramento State Library

Reimagining Access to Information

At the heart of California’s capital university, the University Library is the campus hub of discovery for our students, faculty, and community

The Library makes knowledge available and accessible; inspiring exploration, thoughtful discussion, critical thinking and research. Our library is a creative, growing, and flexible place that connects people and ideas to build a better future. Whether through the launch of the innovative new MakerSpace, or the redesigning of team-oriented collaborative rooms and family-friendly study spaces for students with children, our ultimate focus remains student succes.

When you support the University Library, you elevate student success for all at Sacramento State. Contact Lora Hollingsworth, Director of Development, if you have questions or would like to discover additional ways to get involved.
