This brutal beauty of reinforced concrete and glass is a library for UC San Diego designed in 1970 by architect William Pereira. The library was originally called the "Central Library" until a renovation was completed and it was renamed the Geisel Library Building on December 1, 1995 in honor of Audrey and Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) for the generous contributions they have made to the library and their devotion to improving literacy.
UC San Diegos Mandeville Special Collections Library is the main repository for the papers of Dr. Seuss. The Dr. Seuss Collection, contains more than 8,500 items documenting the full range of Geisels work.
