Skyline Hills Branch Library to be demolished for new facility
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A crew will begin demolishing the Skyline Hills Branch Library on Monday, making way for what the city of San Diego says will be a
modern facility to better serve the public.
The old branch, 480 S. Meadowbrook Drive, closed July 27. The 4,400- square-foot library dates back to 1969. The new library is part of the city’s
plan to innovate the library system and transform branches into "community hubs with innovative programs and technology."
The new, 15,000-square-foot Skyline library will be located on a 3.6-acre lot at 7844 Paradise Valley Road, near where the old library is, and is scheduled to open this October. Along with environmentally friendly features, the $13.2 million library will also have a multi-purpose area, a computer lab and an outdoor reading patio.
While the construction site is closed to the public, patrons may pick up and return items at the Paradise Hills Branch Library, 5922 Rancho Hills Dr.
