Friends and supporters of the UC San Diego Library enjoyed a special dinner at Geisel Library on Sept. 21. The annual Dinner in the Library fundraiser featured delectable food, a silent auction, and keynote speaker Luis Alberto Urrea, Master Storyteller, Award-Winning Author and Alumnus – Class of ’77. During the event, Chancellor Khosla thanked all of our Library supporters for their generosity and for supporting the Geisel Library Revitalization Initiative—a project that is helping transform the interior on several floors.  Chancellor Khosla noted that these renovations are important to enhancing the student experience and student learning. The Chancellor also announced that the university will match gifts raised up to $1 million dollars.
