TEST DRIVING SAN DIEGO
Four hundred computing devices and 1,250,598 volumes. Snazzy 3-D printers and vintage opera librettos. An eye-popping video wall and bound copies of Good Housekeeping magazine. From 1885.
In addition to being huge, the new San Diego Central Library at Joan and Irwin Jacobs Common is all-encompassing. Whether you are a gadget fiend or a dead-tree hugging Luddite, the library probably has what you want. Even if all you want is a cushy chair and killer view.
Our $196.7 million library opened for business on Monday.
