Central Library Concert Series, Winter/Spring 2009

The Central Library is pleased to announce the schedule for the Winter/Spring season of its annual concert series. The series is made possible by public and private donations, and by the San Diego Public Library matching fund program. The concerts are very important to the musicians in the series because they provide a venue for them to perform locally. The community has responded enthusiastically as well, as shown by steadily growing attendance by musicians, music lovers, music appreciation students and San Diego residents. During the 2007-2008 series alone, over 1,100 people attended the concert series.

  • Where: Central Library, downtown - 820 E Street, third floor auditorium
  • When: All concerts are held on Sundays at 2:30 p.m. and they last about one hour.
  • Cost: Programs are free and open to the public.
  • Parking: Free parking is available at the Five Star Parking lot adjacent to the Library on Broadway and 8th. In addition, parking meters are not enforced on Sundays, and other pay parking lots are available in the vicinity of the library. See map for more details about parking downtown.
