Del Mar Library to hold Centennial Celebration June 13

San Diego County Library is celebrating its centennial, 100 Years of Stories, with events and activities taking place throughout 2013. The Del Mar Branch, 1309 Camino Del Mar, is hosting a celebration on Thursday, June 13, at 3:30 p.m. in honor of the system’s centennial and the branch’s recent remodel. The event will include music by acoustic guitarist KEV, refreshments, and special remarks by: Supervisor Dave Roberts, District 3, San Diego County Board of Supervisors; Terry Sinnott, Mayor, City of Del Mar; José Aponte, Director, San Diego County Library.

The Del Mar Library recently underwent a remodel which was funded by a grant from District 3, the Friends of the Del Mar Library, San Diego County Library, the City of Del Mar, and the Del Mar Farmer’s Market. The remodel included additional seating, updated spaces for children and teens, carpet, and a new marketplace area where popular materials are readily available for customers to check out.

“The Del Mar Library remodel coincided perfectly with our centennial,” said Library Director José Aponte. “It shows that even after 100 years, we’re still growing and making sure our branches are the absolute best they can be for our customers.”
