Since February 2024, the Pfau Library had a family of owls nesting on the window ledge of the wedge! Unfortunately, two of the three babies fell from their nest before they were ready to fly. Both were rescued, rehabilitated, and released on Friday, April 13 back to their home at Pfau library!! The whole family is back together at CSUSB!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’™

Student Success

WE ARE ALL about student success. Everything we do here at the John M. Pfau* Library (much of it behind the scenes) builds towards supporting and nurturing the teaching and learning environment of CSUSB from providing guidance in finding and using our resources; to maintaining our online presence in good working order; to re-shelving returned books and everything in between.

Stop by to see for yourself what the library can do for you!

*โ€œPfauโ€ is pronounced โ€œfowโ€ and rhymes with โ€œnow.โ€ โ€œPfauโ€ is the German word for โ€œpeacock.โ€
