Ignite Curiosity, Transform Lives, Create Community.
Library policies reflect our strong commitment to freedom of access to information, privacy, confidentiality, and intellectual freedom. Library Policies are adopted by the Library Board of Trustees.
The Library Board of Trustees welcomes your input! The Board meets on the first Thursday of each month in the City Council Chamber of the Rancho Cucamonga Civic Center, 10500 Civic Center Drive. Meetings begin at 6:00 p.m. and are open to the public.

You can support the Friends of the Library by donating your gently used books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, and more. Donations are accepted during Bookstore open hours. Much more than just previously-read books and magazines, the Friends of the Library Bookstores also offer DVDs, games, puzzles and more. The inventory is always changing so stop by frequently and support your community and Library!
The Friends of the Library has been serving the Rancho Cucamonga community since 1972. The Friends are best known for their volunteerism, special programs, fundraising and of course, their Friends of the Library Bookstores. Bookstores are located just inside the entrances of the Paul A. Biane Library and the Archibald Library and the Friends are always looking for more volunteers to join in the fun. Stop in one of our bookstores today to obtain more details about becoming a Friends volunteer.
