South Chula Vista Library Celebrates 15th Anniversary
The Chula Vista Public Library will hold a 15th Anniversary/Quinceañera celebration at the South Branch on Saturday, September 25 from 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. Activities include ballet folklórico, classical guitar performances, a poetry slam, family crafts, and much more.

In addition, the exhibition, “Power of the Imagination”, featuring paintings and sculpture by artist Armando Nunez, is on display in the library’s Lane Galeria during September. Mr. Nuñez, a South Bay resident, was one of the artists directly involved in the library’s original construction and has exhibited internationally. His art career has included graphic designer, art director, consultant, sculptor, painter, and Sweetwater Union High School District faculty member.

"Along with having the privilege to live for art, comes the social responsibility to preserve cultural traditions and beliefs, promote human heritage, and respond to the needs of the community," stated Nunez. Library Director, Betty Waznis, said, "We are very proud to be able to display the art of Mr. Nuñez at a time when the building will be celebrating its 15th anniversary."

The South Chula Vista Library was designed by renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta. It received many awards when it opened in 1995, including seven Grand Orchids and the American Institute of Architects/San Diego Chapter Award of Honor for outstanding contribution in design.

The South Chula Vista Library is located at 389 Orange Avenue, on the corner of Fourth and Orange Avenues, phone (619) 585-5755. Hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Thursday and Friday 10 a.m. –6 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., closed Sunday. All library programs are co-sponsored by the Friends of the Chula Vista Public Library, and are free and open to the public.
