From Melissa Martin, Branch Manager, University Community Branch Library, (858) 552-1655: Are you ready for The Library Shop’s Curbside Caravan Spring ’21 Tour and Friends of the Library Mini-Book Sale?

Complete the Library survey now through April 17 – help decide the future of your library! The San Diego Public Library wants to know what you want your library to look like. We are working with the San Diego Public Library Foundation to complete a Library Master Plan and are seeking broad public participation in a Community Survey that asks:

  • What you need from the Library,
  • How can the Library serve the community,
  • What services, technologies, and programs would help you and your community.

Please visit the survey webpage and complete the survey online at supportmylibrary.org/master-plan/. The survey is open February 17 to April 17 and is available in Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Tagalog, and Vietnamese, in addition to English. If you have questions, would like a print survey or would like to get more information, contact the Library Foundation at office@supportmylibrary.org or call (619) 236-5849.

Spring into STEAM: During the month of April, sign your children up for up to four virtual STEAM workshops focused on different places, cultures and modes of travel. In these engaging workshops, kids will visit Egypt, learn about the rainforest, create an LED-light up world map and design a vehicle that will travel on land, over water and through the air. Each class is held twice (Saturdays/Tuesdays); upon registration, supply kits may be picked up at a nearby branch before the day of class. By completing two workshops, participants also earn a special prize. In partnership with the San Diego Air & Space Museum, Arts for Learning San Diego, ToshWerks, San Diego Parks and Recreation, and the San Diego Public Library Foundation.
