OCEANSIDE–Starting October 31, the Civic Center Library in downtown Oceanside, will temporarily close for improvements.
The library, located at 330 North Coast Highway, may partly re-open to the public as soon as late November, and is planned to fully re-open no later than January. There will be limited access to the Civic Center Community Rooms and the adjoining courtyard.
The Oceanside Public Library’s Mission Branch, mobile libraries, and Oceanside READS Literacy Center will not be affected; and the library’s e-books and online services will remain available 24/7.
Some popular books and other items for checkout will be transferred to Mission Branch, 3861-B Mission Avenue, which is open Monday to Wednesday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m.
There will be no interruption to staff answering the (760) 435-5600 phone, so the public can call any time during regular hours with questions. Announcements will be made and posted at www.oceansidepubliclibrary.org as soon as re-opening information is available.
