The El Cerrito Public Library opened on October 27, 2004 at the El Cerrito Middle School. This is the first joint-use library between the Corona-Norco school district and the Riverside county library system. The school district built the 10,000-square-foot building and the county contributes monthly for the custodial services and utilities.

Only students are allowed to access the library during school hours. Other patrons must wait until after school and can only check out items owned by the county. The El Cerrito Public Library features a children’s reading room and a community room. Please check out our calendar for exciting events at the library.
