The Next Chapter

J. Burton Vasché Library at Stanislaus State

The University Library represents our collective story and commitment to lifelong learning and is designed to inspire creation and innovation. It’s where students from across campus gather to explore ideas and create their most fantastic future.

You can be a part of The Next Chapter of the newly renovated University Library at Stanislaus State. Your support will be directed toward The Next Chapter Library Campaign Fund for Sustainability and Innovation supporting technology, furnishings and innovation, and state-of-the-art student and guest experiences.

Naming a space permits you to highlight your connection to the University and promote your philanthropic commitment to innovative learning and gathering spaces. We invite you to explore the opportunities below and reach out to our team for more information by email at or by calling us at (209) 667-3131.
