What’s happening at the UH Library

UHCA Anniversary Celebration!

A big thank you goes out to the University Heights Community Association for providing us the opportunity to reach out to the community at the University Heights Sign 25th Anniversary Celebration on April 30th!

We met lots of new people, many who became members of the Friends of the UH Library. There were also many people who got library cards for the first time or renewed their current cards. We hope you will use your library card to acess all the great resources the library provides!

Thank you to Councilmember Stephen Whitburn and State Assemblymember Chris Ward for stopping by our table and for their continued support of our library.

2022-2023 Library Budget

This week, the San Diego City Council considers Mayor Gloria's FY23 proposed budget. While this budget is a step in the right direction, the library system remains underfunded compared to other systems in California and nationwide.

Please join us to request additional library spending!

Past Event - Get Carded!

Our chapter celebrated National Library Card Sign-Up month in September, 2021 with a variety of events.

We held an Open House on September 18th for the community to meet our staff, see the changes at the branch since we reopened , enter to win prizes, enjoy snacks, and of course, sign up for a library card.

On September 23rd, we hosted a Get Carded! event at Kairoa Brewing Company. In addition to socializing with other Friends and library fans, attendees were able to meet staff, enter to win prizes, and of course, sign up for library cards. Thank you to our sponsors and prize donors, Kairoa Brewing Company, San Diego Public Library, Friends of the San Diego Public Library, and Irish Congress of Southern California. Thank you also goes out to Councilmember Stephen Whitburn and his Communications & Council Representative, Benny Cartwright, as well as Congresswoman Sara Jacobs’ Community Representative, David Vance, for attending and supporting our library.
