Encinitas Library

The Encinitas Library is open every day of the week except for San Diego County holidays. The Library is located at 540 Cornish Drive, between “D” and “E” Streets, two blocks east of Highway 101.

The Encinitas Library has been operating on the current site since 1959, with the Friends of
the Library
starting at the suggestion of Elena Countryman in 1980. The award winning new
library building opened in February 2008.

The mission of the Friends of the Encinitas Library is to support the Encinitas Library as it strives to encourage literacy, lifelong learning, and the love of reading throughout our diverse community, as well as to enhance the library's resources, increase the community's access to information and knowledge, and provide for a vibrant cultural gathering place.

The Encinitas Library is part of the San Diego County Library System and receives additional support from the City of Encinitas.

From I-5, exit on Encinitas Blvd. and go west. Turn left on Vulcan Ave. Turn left on D Street and proceed one block. The library is on the right.
