Students Takeover CSU-Fresno Library

Library Occupation Ends Peacefully and Without Arrests
Saturday, November 21, 2009 - Students at CSU-Fresno took over the university library, keeping it open for 24 hours from Friday - Saturday morning. About 100 students and supporters occupied the second floor of the Madden Library, demanding that more university resources go towards keeping the library open for more hours. Ali Espinoza, one of the student leaders who helped organize the takeover, said the university keeps their bowling ally and pool hall open more hours than the library.

The student demands, however, go beyond longer library hours - they want a larger voice in how the university is run. In addition to more library hours the students want co-governance and greater transparency in financial matters on campus. The “study-in” ended at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, with the students saying progress had been made in discussions with the dean of library services.
