Point Loma/Hervey Library

One of the largest libraries in the City of San Diego, the Point Loma/Hervey Library offers many unique features and several conference rooms, a computer lab and media room. Fitting with Point Loma's history as a fishing village, the library incorporates themes of marine life and nautical history throughout the two-story building. In the Children's Area on the first floor, a sailboat serves as a small reading room complete with portholes, a mast and sails. Another attraction is a functioning submarine periscope that gives visitors on the first floor a birds-eye view from the roof. With support from the California Department of Veterans Affairs, the library also houses a Veterans Resource Center staffed with volunteers who are available by appointment.
