Holiday gift guide

The library isn't Sharper Image or, but we do have some useful and attractive items for sale. Check out these holiday gift possibilities:

  • The Library Bookstore offers great prices on a wide range of scholarly and general interest books that are not needed for our collections.
  • For someone who isn't currently affiliated with the University, membership in the California Alumni Association provides a number of benefits, including the ability to get a Library Borrower's Card at no extra charge.
  • Anyone who uses our photocopiers, or prints from the public computers, will appreciate a Copy Card. It's like a BART ticket — add as much value as you want!
  • For the bibliophile on your list, the Bancroft Library offers a variety of publications and other items including cards, posters, and T-shirts.
  • The Water Resources Center Archives' 2008 calendar, "Making the Delta," features historical images of the Sacramento-San Joaquin levee system.
  • People with an altruistic turn of mind will enjoy knowing that you've made a gift to the library in their honor.
  • We've even got stocking stuffers! The Copy Center in Moffitt Library offers pencils, notepads, computer disks, and other useful items.

Finally, if you need a break after all this shopping, we recommend a visit to the Free Speech Movement Café.
