Kennedy Library

An Inclusive Hub. We support the collaborative nature of Learn by Doing.

Behind every great university is a great library. The Robert E. Kennedy Library is the place at Cal Poly where people and information intersect, and where knowledge is created. The Cal Poly Kennedy Library is the heart of Cal Poly. With over one million visitors a year, it serves all students, faculty, staff, and community members outside of Cal Poly with resources and collaborative spaces for group projects and interaction.

Giving Priorities:

  • Library Transformation FundKennedy Library is over 40 years old and needs significant system upgrades. During the summer of 2023, Cal Poly plans to transform the space so the community will return to a refreshed building with new flooring, painting, acoustical ceilings, signage, an expanded café on the First Level, a courtyard with more convenient access to flexible classroom spaces, seismic and fire safety improvements, and greater thermal comfort with air conditioning.
