Want to know the La Jolla Library's best kept secret?


the express book collection is only available to patrons who come into our branch.

Express Books are the latest bestselling books that you would find at a bookstore, available with no wait list exculsively to La Jolla patrons.  The library carries over a thousand titles published within the last year. These titles cannot be found on the online catalog, but are available for browsing at the branch. Please ask staff regarding specific titles. Here you will find a list of titles added last month.  Take Note: they fly off our shelves, but are limited to a 2-week checkout, so there are always opportunites for you to snag a bestseller!  You cannot reserve them online or on the phone. Come in often for the best selection.
