Join the San Diego Public Library Foundation, Board of Library Commissioners, and the Friends of the Library at 5:45 pm, Wednesday, January 13 for an online watch party for Mayor Todd Gloria’s 2021 State of the City address.

The City will face difficult financial decisions in the upcoming budget. Our Libraries have pivoted to provide essential services as San Diegans work and learn from home. And, free Library resources, programs, and services will be essential during the city’s recovery. You can help protect Library services. When you register for the Watch Party, the Library Foundation will send you an advocacy kit to share your support of our Libraries with elected leaders. The kit includes postage-paid postcards you can mail to the Mayor and City Council. NOTE: because of the large demand, your advocacy kit may arrive after January 13.

5:45 pm An update on pressing Library budget needs and how you can help advocate for the Library.
>6 pm We will watch the Mayor’s 2021 State of the City address together. To spice it up, we will send you a bingo card you can complete for a chance at a Library Shop gift card (you can download your own bingo card here: https://tinyurl.com/sotc-bingo).
