Thank you all for a successful grand opening of the new Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Knox Library and one of the biggest “Book Passes” on record. The Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Knox Library is a stunning Craftsman-style building in the tradition of Mission Hills architecture and design. Some four times larger than the current Mission Hills Library, the building will include a children’s area akin to the Hobbit houses as seen in the “Lord of the Rings.” The San Diego Public Library Foundation and Friends of the Mission Hills-Hillcrest Library are partnering to ensure excellent programs, advanced technology and robust collections to serve community needs.

“Go back?” he thought. “No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!”
