San Diego Central Library: The First Not-Quite-Two Years

San Diego Central Library: Success or Money Waste?  (NBC San Diego, 2/16/2015)
But the administrators have had their challenges. About 3,000 people visit the library every day, and staff estimates about a third of those are homeless, an issue officials knew existed way before opening the $185 million facility. 

So the library has stepped up its resources to stop misbehavior, partnering with the nonprofit Mental Health Systems, which has a case worker on site to help the homeless patrons inside. Just last month, the library opened a new resource center to help veterans receive local, state and federal benefits and service.
