Master Plan

The new master plan for Kennedy Library offers a vision for transforming the library to meet our students’ needs now. The plan will add urgently needed capacity for student-centered collaborative academic work, and create an exciting new digitally enhanced center for collecting, sharing, and preserving the stories of Cal Poly, our community, and the lands of the Central Coast.
