SDCC member Gayle will be leading this tour. Thanks, Gayle! Library tours are limited to 10 participants.

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.

      Sorry, Matthew, the tour is limited to 10 people because of library rules. I think you'll enjoy the intimate experience. Have fun!

      Hi, Frances! Thanks for your interest; this is definitely a popular event. I sent out an email a bit ago asking for more event host volunteers to lead another library tour. I have received a few replies, so we'll see what we can work out. FYI, the library only allows 10 people on a tour at a time. Thanks, and hope to see you soon! :)

    Looking forward to the tour and meeting everyone. Sorry, Bruce et al. who can't make it or didn't make the quick fill-up.

    Please make sure you give yourself ample time to get downtown and park, since we will depart right on sched. Alternatively, the trolley stops nearby.
