Located in the heart of Ocean Beach, the library building dates back to 1928 when it was built at a cost of just $18,697. The current building replaced the original library, which opened in a storefront on Abbott street in 1916 after community leaders raised $200 to pay the rent of $5 per month. Architect Robert Snyder designed the library building and it was expanded in 1962 to its current size of 4,579 square feet. Another renovation in early 2012 provided new carpeting and a new roof. A treasure in this iconic beach community, the library has a dedicated group of supporters who take great pride in helping promote services and programs for library patrons.
