About the branch

The library, as part of the new South El Monte Civic Center complex, was built in 1966. Present at the dedication ceremony were County Supervisor Frank G. Bonelli and County Librarian William Geller.

The facility, under a 20-year lease from the City of South El Monte, was purchased by the County of Los Angeles in June 1986. In early 1996, the city generously financed a complete renovation of the library.
