Much more than a place to simply check out books, the Pacific Beach/Taylor Branch Library has become a hub of free social activities for the community — from newborns to seniors.

Among the September offerings is a sing-along on Sept. 14 from 11 a.m. to noon. The library will provide songbooks with the lyrics to classic standards, show tunes and rock ’n’ roll oldies.

The sing-alongs continue on the second Friday of each month.

The library also will host a discussion about “The Media & the Constitution,” on Sept. 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. The discussion is part of the four-month project called “Searching for Democracy: A Public Conversation about the Constitution,” which meets around the city. Professor Kevin Greene of the Thomas Jefferson School of Law will facilitate.

A One-on-One eReader Clinic is set for Sept. 28 from 1 to 4 p.m. Staff members from the San Diego Public Library’s Technology Team will offer personalized guidance in using electronic devices to download free eBooks through the library’s catalog.

Reserve a 30-minute appointment and bring your eReader, Tablet or Laptop to the session. Advance registration is required by calling (858) 581-9934, or sign up at the circulation desk.

Also on the agenda for adults:

• Knitting Circle — Sept. 15, 10 a.m.to noon. The group meets on the third Saturday of every month. Share project and pattern ideas, learn to knit or improve your skills.

• Zumba Gold — Sept. 22, 10 a.m. This low-impact dance-fitness class meets on the fourth Saturday of every month. There’s also a class at 4 p.m. every Monday. Zumba Basic, which is higher impact, meets on the second Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.
