Jeff Clemetson | Editor

This month marks the 10-year anniversary of the La Mesa Library moving into its temporary location at 8074 Allison Ave. The temporary location was given to the library after a 2005 agreement between the city and the San Diego County Library (SDCL) after the city took its old location to house the La Mesa Police station, with the promise to build a new La Mesa branch library sometime in the future. In June of 2008, the library opened in its current digs.

At the May 22 City Council meeting, La Mesa Library branch manager Heather Pisani-Kristl presented an update on the library and how it has fared in the temporary location.
