New Honors for Tutt Library

"Libraries are more than learning centers—they’re also enduring examples of architectural excellence."

After its reopening in 2017, Tutt Library became a symbol of Colorado College's core values: intellectual curiosity, environmental sustainability, innovation, and collaboration.

The library's renovations were so transformational to its relationship with the campus that it is receiving national recognition, as one of six libraries awarded this year's American Institute of Architects/American Library Association Library Building Award for the best library architecture and design. Every year, the AIA partners with the ALA's Library Leadership and Management Association to honor the best in library architecture and design.

According to Library Director JoAnn Jacoby, Tutt Library was such a competitive candidate in part because it was "built for the block," designed to maximize flexibility for students.

Tutt Library is also uniquely representative of CC's sense of place.
