New Imperial Beach Library

The Board of Supervisors authorized the construction of a new library for the Imperial Beach community in July 2014. Construction for the new, approximately 14,000-square-foot library began in January 2016, with expected opening in Spring 2017. It will offer a host of services including free access to 42 million books, DVD movies, and music CDs.
