November 28, 2020 (Lakeside) - In a few months, the County of San Diego will start a new chapter for Lakeside residents and their library, beginning construction on a new 16,400-square-foot library three times larger than the current branch, with a community room for events, a bookstore and large spaces for children and teens.
“Libraries are not just a place for books anymore,” said County Supervisor Dianne Jacob. “They’re a place for children to do their homework, they’re gathering places. And a lot of resources will come into this community as a result of the new library, because it will be bigger and better.”
County officials say construction is expected to start in spring 2021 and be completed in summer 2022.
The County’s Board of Supervisors voted to buy the land to build the new library in September 2017, when Jacob called it a project “near and dear to me and many folks in Lakeside.”
