Staff is usually very busy but knowledgeable and helpful when you get them. If you have not gone via internet it is much nicer as our library has unfortunately turned into homeless central.

I'm not sure when the library moved to its present location, across from the transit center, but it is very adequate and they are very helpful and accommodating. I see they also have many side attractions going on, especially for children.

A small historical sanctuary that connects you with San Luis Obispo's past and gives you a better insight of how this beautiful city first started.

An old Carnegie Library, which now houses the historic society, the building itself is worth a look. There's a good film and some displays that illuminate San Luis Obispo history.

The photo here is of the History Center and Museum; and it has some local history that is worth checking out. The SLO Library is great!

Easy to get to and to find most everything you are interested in. We were surprised for such a small town to have so much available at the SLO Library.
