Estrella Warbirds Museum Research Library

The library is open most Thursdays and Saturdays, 10 am to 4 pm. The library may be open on Fridays and Sundays, 10 am to 4 pm, depending on availability of volunteer staffers. Visitors, members, and researchers are welcome, whenever the library is open.  


The library is set up as a "lending / check-out" library for members of the Estrella Warbirds Museum. It is also available as a "research / resource" library for the college and high school students of San Louis Obispo County. Much of the librarys' collection is available for check-out. However, some of the materials are so fragile / old that they are restricted to in-house library handling only.


Members and their families may check-out up to four items for a thirty day period. Renewal of check-out items is available. Students, wishing to do research, only have to present their student ID cards (for free admission) to the library area (only). Researchers should be aware that the library does not have any copier / scanning capabilities. Subject matter photography, within reason, is permitted. The library, at this time, does not have subject matter indexing available.
