Thank you for an amazing Celebration!

Thank you to everyone who made the fourth annual Celebration Under the Dome such an evening of Endless Possibilities. Your support raised more than $500,000 to support innovative programming and technology at all 36 San Diego Public Libraries. Thank you to Qualcomm for serving as the Title Sponsor for the fourth year and to the 59 members of our Host Committee and our 29 other corporate Sponsors. We are in debt to event Chair Leslie Devaney and Celebration event committee along with honorary chairs Joan and Irwin Jacobs and Audrey Geisel for making this event so memorable. Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 13, 2018 for next year’s Celebration Under the Dome.
