Quartz Hill Library was founded July 24, 1959. This small library was started in one of three adjoining, family run stores and ultimately expanded to encompass each of the three units.
Quartz Hill is part of the unincorporated County of Los Angeles and is located in the southwest part of the Antelope Valley, adjacent to the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster.
Although many new, large and imposing homes have been built in the area, Quartz Hill seems to retain the rural quality of a small town. One may still see the occasional horse and rider meandering down the sidewalk past the front windows of the library.
The annual Street Faire is held in front of the library and the annual Almond Blossom parade has marched by the library for many years. Both events are well attended and each year newcomers discover the library while attending the parade and faire.
