The Norco Library has been serving the residents of the Norco area since July 1930. It is in the heart of a small animal keeping community affectionally known as “Horsetown USA”. The library started in the old Norco Department Store with about 500 books borrowed from the Riverside County Library. It was later moved to the original Norco Elementary School then to a store front building, then to the former City Hall building. The Norco Library made another move on March 2017 to its current location on the first floor of the building located at 3240 Hamner Ave., Ste.  101B. The library houses a unique and extensive collection of equine related materials consisting of books, magazines, and horse training DVD’s. The library provides for needs of 28,000 residents and also extends services to the growing and diverse neighboring areas. The atmosphere of the library is friendly and inviting. It offers preschool and on the lap storytimes, craft activities for families, a reading club for adults and teens, bilingual storytime, STEAM program, free movies, summer reading program and adult ESL classes. Tutors and students of various ages use the library as a study area for lessons and instructions. The library’s community room and meeting room offer a convenient place for local community groups and organizations to meet. In addition, the library provides free wireless access and two study rooms for public use.
