County of San Luis Obispo Public Libraries to host Grand Opening celebration for Oceano Library reopening.

The County of SLO Public Libraries is pleased to announce that the Oceano Library has opened in its new location at 1511 19th Street in Oceano. A Grand Opening celebration is planned for Saturday, October 21, from 10 a.m. to noon.

The new location, formerly used by Lucia Mar School District, was remodeled for library visitors. “The new location feels more spacious and welcoming. And it’s still close to the elementary school and the community center for convenience and visibility,” said Erica Thatcher, Marketing and Engagement Coordinator for County of San Luis Obispo Public Libraries.

The remodel brings fresh paint, more shelving, additional computer workstations, and family restrooms. The library offers books in English and Spanish for all ages, with a selection that focuses on families and students. “Family literacy is at the heart of this library,” Thatcher said.

The community is invited to a Grand Opening celebration Saturday, October 21, from 10 a.m. to noon. The celebration features tacos, music, games, and book giveaways. “We’re excited to open this new space to the community. We offer a wide variety of programming for all ages in a safe and pleasant place, and we look forward to seeing everyone,” said Oceano Library manager Nancy Sierra.
