In 2009 a new room for the library was completed.
In 1996 the City bought the building and converted it into a library.
The Del Mar Library was originally built as St. James Catholic Church in 1914. Then over the years passed through a series of ownerships and uses including two restaurants, an arts school, and an office building. Photo courtesy of the Del Mar Historical Society.
