The new San Diego Central Library took 3 years to build but it was worth it for this mecca of information and culture. It opened September 28, 2013 with nine stories, a charter school, cafe, store, public art and plenty of space for events.
The art collection is great and just getting better with time. It has a permanent gallery space on its top level for rotating exhibits. It also has art throughout the building in the form of displays, sculptures, installations and paintings. We love the baseball memorabilia collection, which is the second largest in the US.
