1 million+ books and a whole lot more…
Before you judge this book by its cover, take a look at what’s inside. San Diego’s new library features stunning architecture, an array of open spaces, and award-winning art collections. The 4000 sq. ft., 350-seat state-of-the-art theater is perfect for presentations and even has glass walls that open to the courtyard for an indoor/outdoor experience. Events can be broadcast throughout the facility from the robotic cameras positioned in the auditorium.
At 688 sq. ft., the conference center is flexible and divisible into smaller rooms, and also available for evening meetings. The most dramatic space is the three-story grand entrance with soaring gravity arch and waffle ceilings. A grand gala evening in this space is a show-stopper! For a bird’s eye view of the mountains and Bay, host an event on the 9th floor terrace, under the iconic dome.
There are meeting spaces, conference spaces, spaces for keynotes or awards presentations, indoor and outdoor and indoor/outdoor spaces, and nontraditional venues for every type of gathering. Here’s a brief rundown the unique spaces at the central library. Be sure to check with library on access or availability of these rooms during business and evening hours.
