 About this Branch

Established in 1924, the Santa Margarita Branch library blends a charming setting in a small, rural community with access to materials and technological support available at the larger regional centers. It is located next to the original jail and constable’s office. It provides a current and well balanced collection of materials, information that is specific to North County needs, internet access, local artists’ display, and events for children and adults.
