What’s with all the kids?

A new library opened in San Diego in December. It’s the Logan Heights Branch Library on 28th St.  It’s a beautiful building with strong Aztec and Hispanic architectural influences. Beyond the new books and other resources now available at the 25,000 square foot branch, the cool architecture alone is worth a visit. 

And, if you have kids, bring them along. They won’t be alone. This library is packed with kids. The library actually sits on the grounds of Logan Heights Elementary and is adjacent to Memorial Middle. Kids have access to it before and after school. I was there on a Thursday afternoon recently and there were kids everywhere. In the computer room(s). In a cool little room called the Child Development Center. In the large Spanish language section.

It looks like the community is getting a lot of use out of the facility. In the old building, which was just under 4,000 square feet, they circulated 4,400 items in January. In the new library this January, more than 14,000 items were checked out.
