** Oct 29 Festivities to Include Modern Architecture Lecture & Book Sale **
University Heights Library
50th Anniversary Celebration
October 29, 10 am -1pm
4193 Park Blvd, 92103
We’ve been busy sprucing up the place for the big event. If you’ve passed by recently, you couldn’t help but notice how fresh and new the building looks. That’s all thanks to a new coat of paint in a color palette more sympathetic to the building’s original design, removing added ornamentation, and restoring the original brushed aluminum lettering to the front and back of the building.
The free event, open to the public, is set for Saturday, October 29th, from 10am to 1 pm. The UH Friends, joined by guests such as Third District Councilmember Todd Gloria, Third District Councilmember elect Chris Ward and others, will offer a salute to this vital community resource. The morning’s festivities will also include a lecture on Mid-Century Modern architecture, a reception, followed by a special book sale of architecture, art and design books you won’t want to miss.
