This site is the property of the Lakeside Friends of the Library, and is in no way connected with the County Library.

Beginning Monday August 24, San Diego County Library will be providing walk-up pickup of requested library materials at all branches.  Walk-up hours are 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Customers can place new requests on or by calling the library, and they will receive a notification by email, phone, or mail when their materials are ready for pickup.  No appointment will be necessary for customers to pick up their materials.  New customers can also sign up for a library card at our walk-up service table during walk-up hours.  Our branches are all accepting returns – customers of the Lakeside Library may return their items in our outdoor book-drops Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5pm, and for convenience the book-drop will now be open 24 hours on weekends.

Patrons are not permitted inside the library at this time. For complete details on how this works, click here.

November 7, 2020: Bunco Fundraiser- CANCELLED


Due to the circumstances surrounding the ever changing concerns regarding the Coronavirus, the Board has decided to cancel the Bunco that was tentatively scheduled for November 7 at the Lakeside VFW.  Out of concerns for everyone’s safety we feel that this is in everyone’s best interest. Refunds may be requested from our Treasurer.  In some cases, only names were provided and no contact information, so please reach out to anyone who you may have sold tickets to.  We are sorry that we aren’t able to hold this fundraiser or any others. Thus, our income has come to a halt.  Any donations are appreciated during these unprecedented times.  Our membership drive for 2021 begins in the Fall, please renew yours and ask a friend to also join.
