With over 30 public libraries in San Diego, there are so many resources for people of all ages. After visiting the Point Loma library with my three kids in tow I felt prompted to write this post. The librarian was very friendly and helpful when it came to finding and checking out books. My kids were excited to choose their library cards and electronically check out books by themselves. We were happy to find out the city is no longer charging a fee for items returned late. This library has a good size book store to purchase used books and a large kids area with comfortable reading corners. The boat design leading downstairs to the Teen and Children's area is very fun and has an area underneath for reading.

In January alone the events calendar for the Point Loma/Hervey Library location is chock-full of great activities. There's something for everyone including storytime, lego or chess club, Zumba, emerging poets gathering, gaming, and even a Prep Academy to prepare high schoolers for the SAT & ACTs.

Interested in trying out a 3D printer? Several locations offer this service. Make an appointment at the library of your choice, but keep in mind the rule is one item per day up to 2 hours a day. Scanning and 3D printing are free, but it is required to stay in the lab to monitor prints.

Eight features that make San Diego Public Libraries great:

1. Homework help for kids and teens as well as a variety of events and fun activities
