Brief History

The Central Luzon Agricultural School (CLAS) now Central Luzon State University (CLSU) was established by virtue of Executive Order No. 10 dated 12 April 1907, it cannot be ascertained if a specific library that was custom fit for students perusal of the farm school was available. “In 1913, however, the students were provided with a library consisting of farming slides which were flashed occasionally together with the regular films shown at that time“(Roque, 1987). The library collection grew over the years through various donations and grants made to the University.
During the 1990 earthquake, the former library building was destroyed and most of the collections were damaged. The new library building was occupied in the last quarter of 1992 and inaugurated in November 1993. It is a two story building located along Academic Avenue, at the back of the University Registrar and Office of Admissions Building.
Today, the CLSU Library continually strives to improve its services through innovating and increasing of facilities and information resources.
