Campaign for Excellence for the Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Harley & Bessie Knox Branch Library

Construction is underway for the new Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Knox Branch Library . After years of planning and community input, the new Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Harley & Bessie Knox Branch Library will be built on the site of the old IBEW building on the corner of West Washington and Front Streets.

The new branch will be nearly four times the size of the current library and offer community gathering spaces and large areas dedicated to children and teens.

Campaign for Excellence — The San Diego Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Mission Hills-Hillcrest Library are cooperatively launching a Campaign for Excellence with a mission to raise private support to allow for the full completion of the Library and to infuse the new Library with education resources, innovative programming and the latest technology. Currently, $10 million in private funding has been raised for the project through grants from the Hervey Family Fund and Bessie Knox Memorial Fund at The San Diego Foundation. The new Library will be named the Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Harley & Bessie Knox Branch Library.
