About the branch

The original Sunkist-La Puente Library was dedicated and opened on Monday, March 28, 1960 to become the second library in the City of La Puente. This storefront library was located at 13913 Elliot Avenue in the Sunkist Shopping Center. The library was dedicated by Supervisor Frank Bonelli. The library remained in that location for 18 years.

Friday, February 10, 1978, was the dedication date of the newly built Sunkist Library, located at 840 N. Puente Avenue, just one block from its old location. Present at the opening were the County Librarian Carol Moss and Supervisor Pete Schabarum.
