Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Harley & Bessie Knox Library

The new Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Harley & Bessie Knox Branch Library is part of a San Diego Library renaissance and a revitalization in the Uptown area. The old facility served Mission Hills for 56 years, but community needs have outgrown the Library. In the heart of Uptown (at 215 West Washington) and adjacent to Florence Elementary School, the new Library creates a spacious new venue that will broaden access to invaluable free resources for new readers, K-12 students, seniors and the business community. The Library Foundation and the Friends of the Mission Hills-Hillcrest Library have partnered on a Campaign for Excellence to ensure excellent programs, advanced technology and robust collections to serve community needs.

Your opportunity to create a legacy in the new Library with an engraved tile, listing on the Community Plaque and Donor Wall and other naming opportunities closes June 10, 2019. Reserve your tile or other recognition and Mission Hills residents Lori and Bill Walton will match your donation, up to $15,000.
