Welcome To Our Website

Our Library does much more than simply lend books. It sponsors programs for children and seniors, holds concerts, conducts art exhibits and film showings, sponsors clubs in local schools, conducts book readings and hosts authors and a lot more.

The Friends of the Rancho Bernardo Library is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to supporting these programs and activities at the Rancho Bernardo Branch of the San Diego Public Library.

These programs include Yoga for children and adults, reading for children, eReader clinics, Zumba classes, Internet classes and much, much else.

We raise money for Library activities, programs and materials.

We sponsor children's programs and concerts in the Library.

The Shadow of the Wind the next One Book, One San Diego Title 
 

                       

The community reading program One Book, One San Diego is entering its ninth year and this year’s selection is Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. Zafón, a native of Spain, was selected from 450 nominations and 200 different book titles. The Shadow of the Wind, set in Barcelona after the Spanish Civil War, is the story of Daniel who protects a mysterious book with his life. This mystery takes Daniel through a journey of Barcelona’s darkest secrets of murder and love. Zafón has written six books published in more than 40 languages and has received countless awards. One Book, One San Diego brings the community together in the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book with readings, author events and other Library programs, which begin in the Fall. The program is a cooperative effort of the San Diego Public Library, KPBS and the San Diego County Library.  One Book, One San Diego is funded by the Linden Root Dickinson Foundation with additional support from the Dr. Seuss Fund at the San Diego Foundation, Jerome’s Furniture, Lloyd’s Pest Control, SDG&E, Cubic and the Samuel I. and John Fox Foundation.
