          Kennedy Library’s “Objects of Affection” is brought to life through a behind-the-scenes stop-motion peak into the illustrations that are found throughout the exhibit. The concept for the exhibit’s aesthetic was devised by student Ragini Sahai (Art & Design, 2014) collaboration with fellow students Audrey Anne Magwili (GrC, 2014) Ben Kieffer (GrC, 2014), Lauren Miller (Art & Design, 2015) Matt Rice (GrC, 2014) and Emily Wang (Art & Design, 2016). The “Objects of Affection” exhibit draws upon the personal papers of families featured in the Re/Collecting Project, an online archive and ethnic studies memory project of California’s Central Coast directed by Grace Yeh, associate professor of ethnic studies. The exhibit is featured on the 2nd floor of Kennedy Library and runs, May 12, 2013 – June 6th, 2014. Join us for the Opening reception May 23, 3PM-5PM. www.lib.calpoly.edu/exhibits Music: Podington Bear (Creative Commons)

            Cal Poly Science Cafe is an informal speaker series that explores scientific topics with an expert. In November 2011, Ric Rhinehart, Executive Director of the Specialty Coffee Association of America and a former Cal Poly student, visited Kennedy Library to lead us in a basic coffee taste test. In this video Ric explains why coffee cupping is used in the industry. The next day there was a delicious community pour-over event at Sally Loo's Wholesome Cafe.

                    Interview with Science Café presenters and web developers/designers Michael J. Newman and Scott Hutchinson. As seen on Boing Boing! http://boingboing.net/2012/03/14/library-staircase-delightfully.html Kennedy Library’s grand staircase was transformed into a live game board using wire, cans and balloons as part of the Cal Poly Science Café series. To play the game, we aimed and threw tennis balls at the cans, which acted as live switches. A digital scoreboard tracked the team’s cans as they were knocked over; it was shared on displays throughout the library and on participants’ mobile devices.
