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.

Ocean Beach Seed Library

The Ocean Beach Seed Library is a place where patrons can share and lend seeds. Similar to checking out books, patrons are able to check out seeds for personal use. Patrons are encouraged to Borrow, Grow, and Harvest seeds. Attend one of our many Seed Library programs and join this community movement for sustainable urban agriculture. You don't need a library card and the checkout process is free and simple. Come to the Ocean Beach Library today and ask any staff member about this exciting program. Or feel free to call us at (619) 531- 1532. The Ocean Beach Seed Library is supported by the Friends of the Ocean Beach Library and other community partners.
