Alvarez Announces New San Ysidro Library Design

[Editor’s Note: This just out from the City of San Diego. The residents of San Ysidro have been waiting more than two decades for a new library. Here is the announcement that it’s happening.]

New San Ysidro Library

For Immediate Release
February 16, 2017

What: New San Ysidro Library Design Unveiling Ceremony

Who: Councilmember David Alvarez; Misty Jones, Director, San Diego Public Library; Mark Nassar, Deputy Director, Public Works Department; Ben Meza, Chair of Friends of the San Ysidro Library and community members

When: Friday, February 17 at 1:00PM

Where: San Ysidro Library, 101 W San Ysidro Blvd, San Ysidro 92173

Why: The San Ysidro Public Library, a San Diego historic site, was built in 1924. After decades of neglect, a new state-of-the-art library will be completed by winter of 2019. This 15,000-square-foot library will be located at 123 E. Seaward Avenue on a 1.62-acre lot acquired by the City in 2015. Through perseverance, Alvarez was able to secure the site and most of the funding for this project, along with a generous donation of $1.5M from Lloyd DeLlamas. After extensive community input, the new design for the San Ysidro Public Library will be unveiled.
