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

San Diego County Library will be providing walk-up only pickup of requested library materials at all branches on Mondays and Fridays between the hours of 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (please wear a mask).

Customers can now come into the library on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays (with a mask) in limited numbers and utilize all normal library services. Computers, photocopies, library cards, picking up books, and returning books are all welcome during this time, with closure 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. for sanitizing. 

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.
