The new downtown library that has long been a dream of San Diego city visionaries is rising up on the corner Park Boulevard and J street.
But the question now is: Will there be enough money to continue the construction?
The San Diego Library Foundation has to deliver $32.5 million in donations by the end of the year to pay for the second phase of construction. Right now the foundation is about $25 million short of that goal.
