Free Acoustic Showcase

The San Diego County Library Acoustic Showcase is a community partnership that enriches our lives through a live perfomance series in San Diego, highlighting world-class talent that is created and rooted in our community.

Bottom-line:  libraries are much more than books and this series supports SDCL’s mission to inform, educate, inspire and entertain our community in not only our brick and mortar libraries, but also virtually 24/7 with SDCL Online, the Virtual Branch.

The fabric of community is woven and enhanced in our shared experience through culture, literature music and dance. To that end, SDCL welcomes this new project that nurtures our traditional role as archivist and advocate for information education and culture and takes that work to all citizens wherever they reside in our County with professionalism, consistency, and seminal timeliness.

Now more than ever in recent history, San Diego residents are asking for access to affordable quality alternatives to entertain their families and friends.  We know the Acoustic Showcase will be just such an initiative partnering community resources with County facilities that are open and accessible to all, at no cost 365 days a year.
