Lalitha Kasthurirangan

Lalitha has a varied experience in libraries, through which she has developed her appreciative view of the San Diego County Library system. From her experiences in India, Lalitha tells of a split system of libraries: one that is free to use, with its modest collection of mostly dilapidated titles; and the other option, a pay-to-use system which had much more to offer.

"I'd pay so much every month for books!" exclaims Lalitha, who is very impressed with the San Diego County system. She is impressed with the ambiance of our branches, the selection of books throughout our catalogue, and the good customer service offered by our staff. Adding to her delight is the low price for the high quality that can be found. "It always amazed me that I could get these books here, for free!"
