The long-awaited New Central Library is a nine-story archive of flexible space replete with public amenities. Topping the structure is a great, airy, reading room shaded by a latticework dome. Bay view terraces, roof gardens, an auditorium, a café, and a regional art gallery also invite the public in.
San Diego's new Central Library opened to the public on September 28th, 2013.
