The Library is planning for the future!

The Yorba Linda Public Library facility has served its community well for over 50 years, but is showing signs of its age and heavy use. Because the library receives an average of over 1,100 visitors per day, a report was commissioned to study the facility's current conditions and the library's future service needs. On August 2, 2011 the City Council authorized funding for a new library facility!
