[Click photo to enlarge]
Artist Susie Shippey has made a beautiful, libary-themed improvement to the SDGE Box outside the PB Library.

David Talon, a PB Town Council Director, has spearheaded an SDGE Box beautification project. There’s been a great response from people wanting to donate their time to brighten the neighborhood’s drab utility boxes.

The latest makeover, outside the Reed Avenue entrance to the Pacific Beach Library, is being done by volunteer artist Susie Shippey.

Susie lives in Fashion Valley, but wanted to make a positive contribution to our library, even though she doesn’t live here.

Susie has spend countless hours in the hot sun, painting away! We greatly appreciate her time and effort. Come take a closer look at her work next time you visit the library.
