The Clerk-Recorder's Office is offering a convenient new way to get access to birth, death, and marriage certificates: a pop-up vital records event. The pop-up, which will take place Saturday, June 22, on the 2nd floor of the Atascadero Library, will run from 10am to 2pm.

The County of San Luis Obispo Clerk-Recorder’s Office today announced that a mobile vital records pop-up event will be held at their North County location in Atascadero on Saturday, June 22, 2024, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The North County office is on the second floor of the Atascadero Library, at 6565 Capistrano Avenue.

The event, which offers county residents an opportunity to obtain certified birth, death, and marriage certificates, will be the first time the Clerk-Recorder has offered access to these on a weekend or outside of the County Government Center in SLO.

“We are excited to begin bringing this important service into our community, since we realize that not everyone has the ability to come into SLO during weekday business hours,” noted Clerk-Recorder Elaina Cano. “This time we are holding the pop-up at our Atascadero office, but future events will be rolled out at locations in other parts of the county, including South County and the coast.”

Additional pop-ups will be hosted by various SLO County library branches later this year.

The cost per certificate copy is as follows: birth $32, death $24, and marriage $17. Customers will need to bring a form of ID and payment; cash, check, and credit card will be accepted (all but American Express). Appointments are not necessary, but attendees who are able are strongly encouraged to begin their application online before heading to the pop-up event, as that will streamline the process and get them their document(s) more quickly.
