Welcome to the Friends of the Rancho Bernardo Library Website

Our amazing Library does so much more than simply lend books: it offers a myriad of programs for all ages, holds top-talent concerts, presents art exhibits and film screenings, sponsors clubs in local schools, hosts book readings and author talks, to name just a few of the important ways it serves and enriches the Rancho Bernardo community!

To do all this takes significantly greater financial resources than the City of San Diego budget allows, and this is where the non-profit, all-volunteer Friends of the Rancho Bernardo Library organization comes in. Since 1983, we have been working quietly behind the scenes to make sure our Library can fulfill its mission to be the heart of the community.

Our collaboration with the City is a a powerful public-private partnership, and we invite you to explore this website to learn more about both the Library and the Friends. We hope you’ll find a wealth of information within and that you’ll come away with your questions answered. If not, you can Contact us. You are always welcome to join the Friends or make a donation to help keep our Rancho Bernardo branch of the San Diego Public Library outstanding!
