The Oceanside Public Library is a literary institution in this beach city, as well as being a seriously beautiful building. Established in 1904, it was first housed in an upstairs room of the Bank of Oceanside.

The library moved around many times in the next 80 or so years, eventually settling in 1989 at its current location, 330 North Coast Highway. Offering readings and events (as well as undergoing a major renovation in 2011) the Oceanside Public Library has been vital to the town for over 100 years.

Stop by for a variety of wonderful reads, and enjoy the beautiful fountains and pools–just as aesthetically gorgeous as the rest of Oceanside.
