California State University, Bakersfield's Walter. W. Stiern Library - The Walter W. Stiern Library opened in 1994 and is the largest building on the California State University, Bakersfield campus. The 150,000 square-foot building houses nearly half a million volumes and provides electronic access to more than 30,000 periodical titles via its hundreds of computer terminals. The Library is managed and operated by 27 staff members and faculty librarians. The Library also maintains a branch library at the CSUB Antelope Valley campus in Lancaster. The Dean of Libraries oversees all operations and services. The Library is named for Walter W. Stiern (1914-1987), a Kern County veterinarian who served 28 years in the State Senate and was instrumental in the establishment of CSUB. The Stiern Library Associates and our benefactors like the late Dr. George and Millie Ablin, for whom the Ablin Conference Room is named, Rayburn and Joan Dezember, for whom the Dezember Reading Room is named, and the late Delores Cerro, for whom the Cerro California History Collection is named, have helped make possible the Library’s positive contribution to the university and community. #000_squarefoot_building #150 #and_the_late_Delores_Cerro #Dezember_Reading_Room #library #Rayburn_and_Joan_Dezember #Walter_W_Stiern_Library
