Branch Manager Message

Message from the Branch Manager:

Hello and welcome to the North University Community Branch Library! Located in San Diego’s dynamic, cosmopolitan UTC/University City neighborhood, our library boasts a wide array of programs and a very large collection of books, audiobooks, CDs,  DVDs, eBooks, and children’s book that is sure to appeal to you or to your friends and family.

Whether you’re stopping by just to check out the latest bestseller, studying up on homework and using our free Wireless network, or needing extra special reference assistance on a research project, our library has it all. Staff at the North University Community Branch Library are dedicated to public service and enhancing your library experience in any way that we can; in short, don’t be afraid to ask for help—that’s what we’re here for.

As a branch manager with the San Diego Public Library, I often tell people, “At our library, there’s something for everyone!” Just take a look at our programs: currently we feature storytimes in seven (7) different languages. In addition, we also feature a weekend session, Family Storytime, and an evening session, Pajama Storytime, for parents whose schedules aren’t able to make it on weekdays morning. For kids, we also offer  Art Adventures with artist Janene Farmer for the remainder of 2013, as well as Preschool Crafts with Ms. Catherine, every Tuesday at 1pm. Just ask staff for details about any of these exciting public programs.

For adults, be sure to look out for some of our signature offerings: Cinema Café is the best place every 3rd Wednesday of the month! Hot new movies with discussion afterward! On the 4th Tuesday of every month, the San Diego Philosophers’ Forum features local academics and independent scholars lecturing on various topics, all of them bound to make you think! One of our newest programs, So Say We All Creative Writing Workshop is every 2nd Tuesday of the month is a great place to meet people and learn new techniques on how to write that novel you’ve been procrastinating on!

Be sure to watch this space in the future for future updates, articles, commentaries and reviews from myself and other North University Community Branch Library staff members! Please come down and pay us a visit and see why we believe our library is the best library in the city (if not the world)!
