About Us

Sun City Library originated with a weekly bookmobile visit almost as soon as the first residents moved into the new Del Webb Seniors community in 1962. By 1965, the county leased a storefront of 1,100 square feet for the first library. Three expansions brought the space to 4,000 square feet by 1990, but this space proved inadequate as the population increased in the surrounding Menifee area. Because of this increase in community, the county purchased a bank building, the Sun City Library Foundation raised $150,000 to furnish it, and a new library opened in December, 1994.

The present library of nearly 11,000 square feet was built on the site and dedicated in 2010. This principal library serves the now incorporated city of Menifee's 80,000 residents and offers free wireless internet to all its patrons.
