Union Bank Homework Center Under Construction

| September 6, 2012 | 0 Comments

Union Bank Senior Vice President and Regional Executive Lawrence Henry and Senior Vice President and Regional Manager Marla Black pause at the entrance of the soon-to-be Union Bank Homework Center during a recent tour of the new Central Library.

Union Bank, N.A., recently celebrated a milestone with the San Diego Public Library Foundation — the half-way completion of the Union Bank Homework Center, a full-service homework center under construction on the second floor of San Diego’s new Central Library. Approximately one year ago, Union Bank signed a commitment to support construction of the new library, scheduled to open in the summer of 2013.

“We’re delighted to see the progress of the entire library and especially the Union Bank Homework Center,” says Union Bank Senior Vice President and Regional Executive Lawrence Henry. “At Union Bank, we are committed to responsible banking, which includes supporting education and financial literacy in our local communities, so supporting the new Central Library and especially the Homework Center is a natural extension of our efforts — it’s gratifying to be a part of this tremendous asset to San Diego.”

Built in the heart of downtown San Diego, the nine-story library will be a regional center for learning and literacy, featuring a cutting-edge technology center, vibrant community gathering spaces, a museum-quality art gallery, performance auditorium and expanded access to books, information and digital resources.

The Union Bank Homework Center’s resources will promote student success with test preparation books, reference materials, computer workstations and access to quality, online databases. The Center will offer after-school tutoring and a volunteer program will help students with their homework and project needs. Located near the Library’s Teen Center, the Homework Center promises to be one of the most popular areas of the new Library. The Center caters to students at the charter high school located in the Library building, as well as students attending the more than 60 schools located within two and a half miles of the new Central Library.
