    Vote for the Central Campus library! 

    The Central Campus Lee Davis Library is a finalist in the Heritage category of the Urban Land Institute’s Development of Distinction Awards. There is a “People’s Choice Award” and you are encouraged to cast your vote in support of the San Jacinto College Central Campus Lee Davis Library! To vote, visit the ULI website.


    From the Urban Land Institute website: The Lee Davis Library at San Jacinto College was designed by James Burleson & Associates and completed in 1966. Gensler designed upgraded infrastructure, computers, online learning, fully equipped classrooms, and community gathering spaces that assist low-income students who lack access to technology and other learning tools. Library performance can be measured not only by numbers of users, graduation rates and test scores; but also in the attitude of students who feel proud of their school and more confident in their academic performance.
