About The Library

Friends of the Library


One of the Library's highest priorities is the formation of a Friends of the Library group. The Friends Organizing Group, a committee of librarians and library staff is working to lay the groundwork for the organization. We are expecting to have a nucleus of members dedicated to taking leadership of this important group.

Join now and become a part of this exciting opportunity!

Volunteer Docents for the Library:

Are you a retired Cal Poly Pomona University faculty or staff? Do you have some time to help at the Library? Here's an opportunity to help! Docents have the opportunity to interact with a wide range of students, faculty, staff, and visitors and to learn more about our wonderful campus. With additional docents we could increase our hours of service.

Cal Poly Pomona University Library is looking for friendly, responsible and energetic people to participate in our Docent Program. The Docents are volunteers who help to cover our Concierge Desk helping our students, faculty, staff and visitors.
