The Cal State San Marcos Library houses the Barahona Center for the Study of Books in Spanish for Children and Adolescents, the only collection of its kind in the world. The center collects all books in Spanish for children and teens published worldwide since 1989 and all books in English about Hispanic/Latino cultures (for children and teens) published in the U.S. since 1989. The Hansen Curriculum Room is a collection of K-12 curriculum resources that are used mainly by students preparing to be teachers in the CSU San Marcos College of Education. Most of the materials in the collection have been purchased through an endowment fund received by the College of Education.
