ORCHIDS & ONIONS NOMINATION
 The Alpine Library has been nominated for an Orchid Award. Each year the San Diego Architectural Foundation's Orchids and Onions Awards recognize San Diego's greatest architectural works. Orchids and Onions is a community-based program driven by nominations curated by the public and online support. To vote for the Alpine Library, login and share your comments at bit.ly/sdclorchid. The nominations with the most comments, likes, and shares will be included in the People's Choice voting pool starting September 1. Voting for the People's Choice award will take place from September 1 to September 15, 2016

The Alpine Library combines sustainable design with technological innovation and offers the community more services including an additional day of service in a building that is 4 times the size of the old building. This is the County of San Diego's first zero net energy building. The energy needed to operate the library is completely offset by the energy harvested and saved through sustainability aspects. The Alpine Library offers a host of services that empower and educate the community, including free access to a network of 42 million books, DVD movies and music CDs; daily storytime; and programs for all ages. Visit the Alpine Library and discover all of the great programs and services it has to offer. Special events this month include:

"Every day, as I work in the Friends Bookstore, I see families, teens, singles, and seniors flocking to the new Alpine Library. They often pause and touch the mural by Betsy Schultz and smile. The kids dance out with books in their hands," said Alpine Library Friends Association President Christine Connell. "People stop me constantly to say how thrilled they are with the design, materials and programs."

For more information, call the library at (619) 445-4221. To vote for the Alpine Library, visit bit.ly/sdclorchid or www.orchidsandonions.org/project/county-san-diego-alpine-library.
