library history

Temple City Library was founded when Willa Samson initiated a small lending library in her home. In 1924, Mrs. Samson's rental cottage (9961 Woodruff Avenue) became the first official library site with Mrs. Samson as Temple City's first librarian.

When the library outgrew its surroundings, it was relocated in the abandoned Pacific Electric building (corner of Las Tunas and Kauffman). In 1941, the library moved to the new Woman's Clubhouse's west wing.

In January 1953, the library was housed in the County's new building on Kauffman where, for the first time, a children's department was added. The present location was opened in 1963.
