Work building the larger learning foundation on Park Boulevard, on the 300 block between K Street and J STreet, did not take away local memories left in well known books. The new Central Library, open to the public the first time on Saturday the 28th, just gives patrons more floors, and technology inventions, to use to learn the lessons a local can look back on as worth keeping for a firm grip on life.
New volumes, on paper and electronic copy read by touch, join the loved collection moved from the E STreet library's regular shelves, and, the stock largely off the readership record. The dome top that covers the 9th floor rare book room not yet every inch finished will stand above the crowds who wait to get a welcome to the public education icon on Monday after the 9 hour opening. Civic meeting space, pieced together on the seven library floors on clean paths, guarded up high by the dome, will make the opening lessons relaxed work.
The message on the gains in the stories and knowledge handed out at the library will spread by word of mouth once the silence on Park Boulevard ends Saturday at 11 am for the seven hour celebration of the treasured stacks that together fill the floor spaces with the larger learning collections that stand united in the over 1.5 million book library editions. Patrons will learn additions one by one and discover again all the old titles on their walks through the series of stations. Success, after decades spent planning the pieces inthe library, and the work done by Turner Construction on the recession and recovery build, started after the city council finally gave a yes on the project in JUne 2010, did not take holding cancellations to gain. Just several late work projects to test the construction workers strength that fell into place, without any general fund money, after Joan and Irwin Jacobs gave a 10 million dollar grant to finish the library in 2013 for its Fall opening.
The still growing assortment of good books locals borrowed for pleasure for years, did not get broken up during the library's "many years in the making," the Library Director gave the buzz on this month. The "unique beginning" the architect trusted in did not put an end to the many settled agreements upheld during the 17 years workshops were held with San Diegans to give them a share in the honored work. Inside the glass house wall on J STreet, workers fit the old children's collection and the large count of library acquisitions stored on E Street in the new children's library located in back of the checkout area, line dup with linked up automatic checkouts, on the first floor. There are books for everyone in the collection triple the old size. Books in 26 languages.
Reading pleasure is bound to happen for a patron who picks a book in the first floor Popular Library. If there is no title with genuine value on the main shelves, only minutes are needed to check the Check First location.
No standard topics, on the politics at hand, or the steps and leaps taken in education, or the progress made in labor were lost to line up, on the second floor, rooms for study.
Everything has a floor space on the library stories. No book space was lost just to spread the computer terminals through the floor middles and the collection folds. Possibilities for finding pocket literature or long philosophy volumes on the 4th floor the terminal rows are found in both the Qualcomm Internet Center and the Wells Fargo Technology Learning Center will stay easy.
E STreet's building was a storehouse too small to keep all the borrowing books here on the shelves. Next week, visitors on the Park Boulevard 3rd floor will find a government collection that is not sparse on the floor. Back room history and records forgotten behind closed doors now become topics in hand. The title sides have their numbers and places on shelves on a story built for local civic progress. San Diego's municipal code publications and ordinances on paper add weight to the shelves. Recent government releases not in print have an electronic copy series on line.
One more space to stop in. Any average citizen can, on any day, learn a local change for the times, from scratch, at a newspapers and periodicals fact story location.
The key to the new Central Library opens the entrance to a habitual civic habitat built to get locals together to learn. One friendly to local families.
