This is a great library. Wonderful young people and children's sections and an extensive adult library. Many dvd's and audio books available. Very comfortably furnished and a great place to hang out but they do require cell phones off , and it is a quiet place. It's a library. What were you thinking? Staff are helpful and friendly.

We walked down Orange Street a lot on our 3 day stay and I wanted to see the glass panels of the Wizard of Oz. They were very pretty but what I really loved was an exhibit they had at the time of Girl Scout history and memorabilia (of course, I'm a former Girl Scout)! There were four different glass... More

This library is perfect for a stop with the kids. It is within walking distance from the Del and it has the park across the street. Great option for travelers.

This is a public library with a good selection of local newspapers and the NYT, as well as quite a few magazines, etc. for a small town. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Pretty extensive opening hours, especially for this day and age when libraries are on limited budgets.

A recent visit for personal research was successful due to the assistance of the staff, who also informed me of their online services. It has a wonderful set-up with areas and selections for all ages, computers and wi-fi, work tables or cublicles, and comfortable seating.

This beautiful old building on Orange Avenue in the heart of Coronado and was one of the featured buildings on a walk between the ocean area and the ferry terminal. The area around the library is very pleasant including the large park opposite so take in the scenery and the historical building if on Coronado Island.
