Thank you for your interest in the Friends of the La Jolla Library.  From the time it was the 'book room’ a hundred years ago until now, the La Jolla Library has been built and rebuilt by the efforts of a group of citizens: the Friends.  Friends made the first library in the 13-library system of San Diego many years ago, and then, on March 27, 2004 we opened the current library of the 21st century. It really is your library.

Your library is one of the most highly valued gems in the Jewel that is La Jolla.  It has been a crucial part of 'Village life' for many decades. Whether you take out a book, come to hear a lecture, watch a movie classic, or ride the information highway, you'll see soon that  you will enjoy your library even more as a Friend. For an thoughtful message about how valuable your library is, read Why Libraries?.

If you are not yet a Friend, we invite you to join us and enjoy all the special activities and services that Friends enjoy.  You can choose the level of membership that offers you what you want, and in the coming months, we will have some exciting “behind the scenes” tours and other opportunities for you.
