The Glen Avon Regional Library, located in Jurupa Valley opened its current location in 1995. The 20,000 square foot building has a spacious community room, a story room and three service desks to accommodate a family oriented community. The branch is the local repository for the Stringfellow Acid Pits documentation, an environmental water contamination incident that occurred in the area.

The library offers a variety of programming to meet the needs of its diverse community. Some successful grant funded programs and collaborations include: participation in the Making a Difference/ community dialogue grant program, funded by the California Council for the Humanities and an ongoing successful partnership with Jurupa Unified School District. The Friends of the Library group supports the ongoing programs such as author events and an annual book festival, featuring local authors.
