The La Mesa branch of the County Library system has reopened in a new building with 2,100 more square feet than its previous location. Its 10,000 total square feet now house two Express Checkout stations, a teen area, a comfortable seating area, a storytime alcove in the expanded Children’s Room and a bookstore for the Friends of the Library. New furniture and shelving, an area for historical display and free wireless Internet access round out the features of the new facility, which is in the same civic complex as the previous location.
Branch hours will remain the same:
- Monday – Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Friday and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- Sunday, 1 – 5 p.m.
All scheduled events and services will continue in the new library, including the planned Summer Reading Programs for children, teens and adults.
