Mission Statement

As the Friends of the Murrieta Library, our mission is to support the Murrieta Public Library through fund-raising, advocacy and volunteerism, and to promote awareness of and support for the Library as it serves the informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs of our Community.

The Murrieta Public Library

The current 25,000 square foot Murrieta Public Library opened its doors on March 17, 2007. It houses over 87,000 items in its collection, and has 44 public computers with Internet access. An integral part of the Murrieta community, the Library averages 26,000 visitors a month, and checks out an average of 37,000 items monthly. Last year, the Library presented educational and entertaining programs to 5,858 children, teens and adults.
