Can I access books outside of Carlsbad?
The City of Carlsbad Public Library is not part of a library co-op.
The City of Carlsbad Public Library offers an Inter Library Loan service--this service allows patrons to request books that are not available from the City Of Carlsbad Public Library. The service costs $5.00 a book. You can either come into the library and fill out a form or you can call us; you must have a library card with the City of Carlsbad Public Library to request an Interlibrary Loan.
The San Diego County Library performs the same service, but for free. The County requires that you have a County of San Diego Library card.
Please feel free to contact either Carlsbad or San Diego County library system.
