Mission Statement

As the Friends of the Murrieta Library, our mission is to support the Murrieta Public Library through fund-raising, advocacy and volunteerism, and to promote awareness of and support for the Library as it serves the informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs of our Community.

The Murrieta Public Library

The current 25,000 square foot Murrieta Public Library opened its doors on March 17, 2007. It houses over 89,000 items in its collection, and has 44 public computers with Internet access. An integral part of the Murrieta community, the Library averages 26,000 visitors a month, and checks out an average of 37,000 items monthly. Last year, the Library presented educational and entertaining programs to 10,000 children, teens and adults.

How the Friends Help the Library

The Friends of the Murrieta Library support the Library by fundraising, promoting the Library, and volunteering - in the Library, in the community, and in Friends’ projects. Since its founding in 1996, The Friends of the Murrieta Library has raised over $820,000 to support the Library. The Friends have donated over $635,000 for many purposes, including:

Approximately $185,000 remains available to meet future Library needs, and is invested in the Dorothy Renon Fund and other funds, which were created to support the Library.

Friends’ members support and assist the Library in many ways, depending on their individual talents and interests, through activities such as:
