The project was created through the design-build team of C.W. Driver, Ferguson Pape Baldwin Architects, and architect Manuel Oncina selected in a competitive design process.

From indoor trees for kids to cozy up and read under to an outdoor patio with park view, 42 million books, many specialized spaces and plenty of high-tech amenities, the spacious new library is not only innovative in design and beautiful, it’s also energy efficient as the County’s first Zero Net Energy building.  Next up, the County is seeking LEED Gold certification.

LIBRARY CONTEST YIELDS BIG WIN FOR ALPINE 10-YEAR-OLD

 

November 14, 2013 (Alpine) – When Amy Gorence saw an email in her inbox from Scholarshare, she didn’t open it because she assumed it was advertising. It turns out she overlooked a notification that her daughter, Ryley, had won a scholarship for $529 through a contest, “Reading Makes Cent$,” at the Alpine Library.

Luckily, the folks with California’s official 529 College Savings Plan didn’t give up too easily. A few weeks later, Amy got a phone call asking if Ryley was still interested. “Interested in what?” she asked. The answer was a big surprise: Ryley’s name was chosen, out of all the entries from the San Diego County Library system, to receive $529 in a tax-advantaged savings plan for her college education. As if this weren’t enough good news, there’s more: the Alpine Library will receive matching funds—another $529—to spend on materials.
