Mobile Library is a hit at the Kiwanis Pancake breakfast


On Saturday July 28th the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla served up their annual “gift to the community”…The Pancake Breakfast at the La Jolla Rec Center. Many calories were consumed, along with laughter and comradery.  The La Jolla Library was right in the thick of it with their booth and Mobile Library, manned by our Youth Librarian, Angie Stavie, and a bevy of young volunteers.  Heavy traffic ensued and many patrons signed up for library cards and the Summer Reading Program.  Congratulations and thank you to Angie and the volunteers.





Innovative Service in La Jolla Leads to Staff Recognition


Kudos to La Jolla/Riford Library branch manager, Shaun Briley, for being named 2018 Employee of the Year by the City of San Diego Libraries thanks to a slew of groundbreaking services provided by the branch. La Jolla residents have enjoyed such innovations as the Memory Lab, the Bio Lab, the 3D printing Lab, ‘Citizen Science’ lectures, and other enriching programs brought in under Briley's stewardship.  According to San Diego Library Director Misty Jones, Shaun received multiple nominations citing the way he and other library staff work "tirelessly to connect with community leaders to create meaningful partnerships that benefit our patrons.” Briley commented: "a top library needs top staff and we are blessed to have a great team in La Jolla. This accolade reflects the efforts of everyone who works here."
