Cabrillo College

The Library has Fewer Books, More Study Spaces. The number of students coming to the Cabrillo College Library has continued to increase over the past several years, as emphasized by one of our current mantras, "we've never been busier." To help accommodate this growing use, this summer we completed the first major but careful “refresh” of our book collection in more than 20 years, removing from the collection over 8,000 outdated or unused books. This enabled us to replace a large section of bookshelves with 30 additional study spaces for our students. We expect that a more current and compact physical collection will be more useful to – and used by – our students. As of the start of our Fall semester two weeks ago, students have already found the new study spaces - most have been in use every day!Cabrillo
