On Tuesday, July 29th, a magnitude 5.4 struck southern California. Centered in nearby Chino Hills, the quake was strong enough to cause the administration to close the campus at 12:30pm.
The Library did not suffer any structural damage, but the earthquake knocked a multitude of books off the shelves on the 4th, 5th, and 6th floors. As a safety precaution, these floors were closed to the public. The day after the temblor, a massive re-shelving effort has taken place. In just one day the library staff and volunteers were able to completely organize the 4th floor and re-shelve over half of our 5th floor.
