STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State University library is being honored for its series of Science Café programs on the oil and gas industry.

The Edmon Low Library has won the American Library Association’s 2015 Excellence in Library Programming Award. The award goes to a library that provides programs that encourage learning and awareness and have community impact.

The library hosted "Hydraulic Fracturing: Implications for Land, Water, and Communities," a program that provided scientific research behind issues involving the state’s energy industry, including hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking."

The first event at the OSU library in April 2014 set a Science Café attendance record with 155 people present. The campus program was so successful that four additional programs on the topic were held at the Stillwater Public Library.

OSU’s Science Café began in 2012.
