Chandramohan Library

Featuring two, light-filled floors that have exquisite views of the San Gabriel Mountains, the Chandramohan Library is a warm and inviting gathering place for students, faculty, and staff. The lower library level is open for collaborative work and catching up with friends; the upper level offers a quiet and comfortable study space. Please come to the library to work, meet with friends, read a book, check out materials or just to say hello. 

The Facilities 

After extensive renovations to the original space, the Chandramohan Library opened in September 2007. The library complex is situated in the center of campus and features two computer labs, a meeting room, space for individual and group study, and a college counseling suite. The upper level of the library is reserved for quiet study and research, while the lower level floor is a collaborative and social place.
