Cal Poly's Kennedy Library named among best in the nation

Kennedy Library Out Loud

Cal Poly's Kennedy Library has received the equivalent of the Oscar when it comes to university libraries.

The Association of College and Research Libraries has issued its Excellence in Academic Libraries Award to Kennedy, an award only given to one recipient each year at the university level.

Cal Poly Librarian Anna Gold says the award is phenomenally affirming.

"We are so proud of what we do here and we knew it was innovative," said gold. "Because the award is given for libraries that are exceptional in working together within their own organization and exceptional in how they serve their communities, it's the award we would have wanted and it's very important to us."

Santa Barbara City College received the Community College version of this award in 2011.
