The first floor of the Central Services Building housed the library at the Santa Cruz campus during 1965-66, until the completion of the first unit of the University Library. Under the New Campuses Program established in 1962, basic undergraduate library books were purchased in triplicate at San Diego for the developing campuses at Santa Cruz, San Diego, and Irvine. The 75,000-volume core collection thus provided was supplemented by purchases and gifts at Santa Cruz.
In addition to the centralized library collection, small libraries for cultural reading were planned for each of the residential colleges. The campus bookstore was located within the library.
