Athenaeum Music & Arts Library

The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is one of only 16 nonprofit membership libraries in the United States. It is a must-see San Diego attraction and is located in the heart of La Jolla. This rare cultural institution offers a depth and accessibility of resources and programs found nowhere else in the region.

The library, devoted exclusively to music and art, has an outstanding and ever-expanding collection of books, periodicals, reference material, compact discs, videocassettes, DVDs, sheet music, and librettos, as well as one of the most significant collections of artists' books in Southern California. The library is open to the public five days a week and members can check out materials for a modest annual fee.

This La Jolla organization also presents an eclectic, year-round schedule of art exhibitions, concerts (classical, jazz, and new music), lectures and studio art classes through its School of the Arts, tours and special events.

The Athenaeum is closed Sundays & Mondays. When visiting La Jolla on the weekend, be sure to stop in on Saturday. For hours and more detailed visitor information, visit www.ljathenaeum.org.
