There are key points in time that change the course of history.

The specific location, bounded by Park Boulevard, 11th Avenue and J Street in the East Village near Petco Park was chosen for its urban density and community connectivity, both of which contribute to it being environmentally friendly. Alternate transportation options for library users and employees are available, including more than 500 trolley and bus stops each day within 1/4 mile of the library. There are also 66 sheltered bike racks and nine electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
