At San Diego County Library our focus is on sustainability, which means we care about three things: people, the planet, and prosperity. Our facilities are designed to be eco-friendly with energy-saving lights and renewable energy. We offer programs and services that teach how to live greener, and we partner with local groups to make our community better for everyone.
