 About this Branch

Our Los Osos Library continues to be a thriving hub for the community. Founded in 1940, we have evolved over the years to serve as a source for creative programming including children storytimes, book discussions and family movie showings. Our collection includes written materials, music, audio books and movies. We offer electronic material as well as reference help and referrals. All ages are welcome to create, explore, be informed, ask questions and contribute to our world through their library. We are here to serve as a beacon for library services.
