As a member of the Student Library Advisory Council, I’ve had amazing opportunities to collaborate with library administration about how we experience Kennedy Library. Being someone who admittedly, (and sometimes unfortunately) views the library as a second home, I felt all the more honored when I was asked to help take the idea of student input even one step further.
During their second visit to campus in February the architectural firm Shepley Bulfinch met again with the Cal Poly community to listen closely to our needs and explore ideas for reimagining Kennedy Library.
The architectural team met separately with the steering committee, building program committee, staff, faculty, academic partners and students. It was a full day!
On November 21 and 22, a project team from the architectural firm Shepley Bulfinch will be visiting the Robert E. Kennedy Library. Their visit kicks off a project to reimagine Kennedy Library for the next 5-10 years. Consider these 5-10 years to be a bridge between the library we know now, and the library of the future, also known as the academic commons.
