About the branch

In 2003, John Brevidoro and his brother, Robert, donated 1.5 acres of land on Crown Valley Road in Acton to the County of Los Angeles for the site of a new County library to serve the residents of the communities of Acton and Agua Dulce in northern Los Angeles County. The Brevidoro brothers donated the land in memory of their parents, Christopher C. and Ida G. Brevidoro, the founders of the Colombo Lilac Ranch in Acton.

The library itself is named in honor of their father, Christopher Colombo Brevidoro, who emigrated from Genoa, Italy to California in November 1920. The children's reading area within the library is named in honor of their mother, Ida Ghio Brevidoro, a native Southern Californian.

The Library opened on September 29, 2010.
