Tour of the San Diego Central Library 11.18

  • Nov 18, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

SDCC member Nancy will be leading this tour. Thanks, Nancy! Library tours are limited to 10 participants, so RSVP soon if you'd like to join.

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.

    I thought I was smart--ha ha. I can't figure out how to get myself off the list of "want a spot" I'm listed as NOT ATTENDING but no other way to delete from this list.....I'm going on the 12-10 tour.

      Sorry, Jan, I think it's just one of those Meetup quirks. :( Thank you for updating your RSVP and I'm glad you can attend on 12/10.

    FYI – the library’s underground parking is still free up to about two hours. You may wish to park there. Enjoy your tour! Behrouz

      My pleasure, Nancy!
      FYI – to make sure, I just called their office and the underground parking is still free until Dec 2nd which is great for your team. -:). It seems ABM has been selected as the parking vendor to manage the Central Library's 250 underground parking spaces, effective Monday, December 2, 2013:
      Questions or comments concerning parking can be directed to:[masked]-0072.
      Enjoy your tour!

    Aaah, this event gets filled up fast. I also can't seem to waitlist.

    October 23, 2013

    • Frances Naty G.

      I clicked on I want a spot in the email, but says I can't waitlist anymore because the slots are filled before I signed up. That's okay, will wait another time.

      I'm sorry to hear that it's not working. I wish Meetup would stop changing things. :(
