More about the library:
The new Central Library is a nine-story building of flexible spaces with diverse and accessible public amenities. Bay view terraces, roof gardens and a public reading room reflect and celebrate San Diego's natural beauty and temperate climate. The library's spaces are designed to open, inviting patrons to explore or relax with a newfound book. Special features include a flexible Special Events room on the ninth floor, a state-of-the-art auditorium, and a beautiful reading room under the lattice dome, creating a unique and extraordinary facility.
The design allows the New Central Library to fulfill its crucial role as the heart of the 35-branch system — with space to provide literacy, children's and adult programs, disabled access, technology and web-based services, and answers to reference questions from throughout the region.
