Exciting times!

Our community of Lakeside is on the cusp of a wonderful new development that will bring fantastic resources and opportunities with it: a brand new, state-of-the-art library in the center of town that will be three times the size of the current facility! The County of San Diego has committed $17 million for construction and architect selection is under way.

We have raised a little more than $100,000 so far but our goal is twice that to support an expanded array of programs.

As construction approaches and begins we plan to use all local media, as well as booths at local events and flyers and posters galore, to stimulate interest in and active support of the new library. You can take part in this by becoming a Friend of the Library. One of the benefits members of the Lakeside Friends of the Library receive is an electronic Newsletter each month which includes the latest and greatest Calendar of events for the current month from our Lakeside Library in addition to events we are hosting. New status updates are published in the Newsletter when we are informed by the San County Library staff on the progress of the new library. Join us and stay current on the latest news about the library as well as any events we are hosting.  

We have been actively soliciting support from businesses in town and major companies in San Diego. These efforts rely on the volunteerism of our Friends and members of the board, which, at times, seems to know no bounds.

We want to do right by our town educationally, culturally, and economically when it comes to the library facility and programs and to honor the faith the County of San Diego is showing in library staff and Friends to make the new library a centerpiece of community life.

Investing your time and financial support in the library will pay dividends for Lakeside far into the future and we deeply appreciate this opportunity to ask for your help. Thank you!

Lakeside Friends of the Library meets the second Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m., at the Lakeside library. All members are welcome to attend.
