MCRD San Diego Library

Borrowing from the Library

Borrowing materials from the Library is easy...all it takes is a Library card!

All eligible patrons (Marines, other service personnel and their families, Reservists and Retirees, DoD Civilians, and DoD Contractors stationed on or near MCRD) may register to receive an MCRD San Diego Library card.

For assistance, visit the Library, call 619-524-1849, or email 


MCRD San Diego Library card holders can borrow:

• Unlimited books and magazines

10 DVDs, 10 Audiobooks, 10 Playaways

2 Video games, 2 Launchpads

All items check out for 3 weeks unless marked otherwise. Items will auto renew for another 2 check out periods (for a total of 9 weeks), unless another patron has placed a hold on an item and is waiting for it to be returned.


Put it on hold!

See something you want, but it's currently checked out? Put it on hold!

Patrons may reserve MCRD San Diego items through the Library's website, app, or Circulation Desk. If the MCRD San Diego Library doesn't have a particular item, staff can check other military bases and request the item through the Interlibrary Loan system.
