Finals Week Spring 2021

Library Pilot Re-opening


Library phased re-openingThe Cal Poly Pomona University Library will run a pilot reopening at the end of the Spring 2020 semester starting May 2nd, 2020. With the improving COVID-19 pandemic situation in California, the library opens the second floor of the University Library to appointments from Sunday to Friday. Campus community members must complete the safer return checklist and the health screener before campus arrival. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the library undertook multiple initiatives to improve the safety of the library patrons.

Download the parking permit from the link in your reservation confirmation email and place on your dashboard. The permit is only good for the day of your reservation.

Operating hours for the Library are as follows:
