I love the whole san diego library system. If you can't find a book at one location, you can just call another branch and they'll send it over cost free. Their online catalog also makes everything easy so that you know where to find books so you don't have to run around.

There's about 30-something branches in the San Diego library system. I've only visited about maybe half a dozen of them. I love the libraries. So many technological aspects have been updated over the. I.e. the internet, cds, and dvds. Libraries have more and more computers for public use. The reason I no longer go to the library is because I can search up any title on the catalog on the City of San Diego Libraries's website. It is so helpful. All I need to do is search the title, call that branch to send it to my local library, and pick up that item in 2-3 business days. The resources and database are amazing. And since there are so many branches, there's just about every title. Every library I've been is nicely built. All of them are spacious with so many things. They all have games, toys, reading programs, storytime, booksales, and special events that happen all year. I don't know of any library system that is this perfect. And the best part is that it's still improving.

PROS: Database, Catalog, Facilities, Titles, Helpful, Computers, Internet
CONS: None.

I've been to three branch libraries in San Diego--North Clairemont, Linda Vista, and Mira Mesa. All three are nice places, good selection of books, and have pretty friendly staff.

The biggest problem I have with the San Diego Library system is that it's online services are pretty weak. For example, if there is a book in one branch library, and you want to put it on hold at your library, you have to pay $1 to do it online! To do so by phone is free, but via online--$1. Strange.

The greatest thing about the system is that your card is valid at any of the libraries. It's also valid for computer time. And each branch library makes high-speed wireless internet available, making it very easy to do research or relax at any of the library branches.
