CSUMB Library Study Room for Families

101% of $5,000 goal
This campaign ended on November 17, 2021, but you can still make a gift to California State University-Monterey Bay by clicking here!

The Tanimura & Antle Family Memorial Library at CSUMB is committed to supporting diversity, inclusive excellence, equity, and social justice within the communities we serve. The library strives to: 

● Enhance the experience of the CSUMB community by maintaining inclusive, safe, and welcoming library spaces, and by providing resources, services, programs, events, and exhibits that support diversity, inclusive excellence, equity, social justice, and a sense of belonging. 
● Maintain strong relationships with diverse CSUMB communities including cultural and identity groups, first-generation, low-income, international students, and programs that support them. 

Our first initiative was to create a lactation room in the library, which has been an overwhelming success. Launched in August 2019, the lactation room was utilized 128 times over only a semester and a half (pre-pandemic).

A family friendly study room, which will be the only one on the CSUMB campus,  would align with our values to maintain an inclusive and welcoming space for our students who carry many responsibilities, which for some could include caring for their own children, younger siblings, and other family members. 

Some examples of what we need are: 

● kid-friendly floor mats
● shelving 
● kids tables and chairs
● decorations
● supplies
● educational materials
● educational equipment 
● kids toys

We would be grateful if you would consider a gift to support transforming this space into a welcome, safe, inviting environment for children and their caretakers.

Thank you!

Thank you to all who gave to this exciting campaign! We have exceeded our goal and can't wait to get started on transforming this space into one that is welcoming to families. We look forward to showing it off!

​Exciting news!

Exciting news! We have almost reached our original goal! However, $3,000 was the minimum needed to transform this space into one that is welcoming to families and caregivers.  Our Challenge Goal is $5,000, which will allow us to include our wishlist for this inclusive study room.  Thanks to all of you who have given so far!
