The Grace Mellman Community Library has been an integral part of the Temecula story since 1972. The doors first opened in the Rancho California Plaza on August 9, 1972. Twenty years later a new 15,000 square foot facility opened at 41000 County Center Drive on May 3, 1992. The library continues to serve the public in this location

Originally known as the Temecula Branch of the Riverside County Free Library, the library’s name changed when the new facility opened in 1992.  The newly-named Temecula Library experienced rapid growth in its $3-million facility that was partially funded by the fund raising efforts of local citizens. In 2006 the City of Temecula opened the Temecula Public Library on Pauba Road, and with the opening of the new structure, the current library’s name was changed to the Grace Mellman Community Library, named after Grace Mellman—the woman behind the original fund-raising effort and former president of the Friends of the Temecula Libraries.

Remodeled in 2010, the twenty-first century library provides more than a place to check out your favorite book. Interactive check-out stations, two public computer labs, comfortable and functional furnishings, and two new study rooms are some of the enhancements that supplement the book repository. The building features a rotating art exhibit and a large community room that is available to the public for outside programs. Both the Adult and Youth Services departments offer several interesting programs each month, while the Youth Services department hosts multiple weekly story times for the youngest in the community.
