San Diego’s community and civic leaders celebrate 2024 library champions

Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate our 2024 library champions: Mel Katz (pictured above), Jim Dawe Library Champion; Pat Wilson, Library Advocacy Champion; Raul Campillo and the Staff of City Council District 7, Legislative Partner; and a special tribute to Judith Harris, Former Library Foundation SD Board Chair. We also announced our plans to name the Art Gallery at the Central Library @ Joan Λ Irwin Jacobs Common in her honor. Stay tuned for more details on that unveiling.

This year’s honorees are wonderful examples of lifelong library advocates and make us proud of our work at Library Foundation SD on behalf of San Diego’s libraries. Make sure to check out our photos from the celebration below.

Thank you for your commitment to ensuring San Diego has a world-class library system now and for future generations.

We look forward to building on the work of Mel, Pat, Raul, Judith, and many other inspirational leaders as we continue our mission.
