The La Quinta Branch Library, one of the 35 libraries of the Riverside County Library System (RCLS), founded in 1911 as the Riverside County Free Library, serves more than 38,000 residents in the city of La Quinta. The library was introduced in 1976 as a bookmobile stop parked nearby the village's playground area and was finally established in 1986 as a library branch. Today, it is a 20,000-square-foot stand-alone library designed to include an adult area, a story-time room, and a teen room to cater to the continuing need for bigger space. The La Quinta branch adds to the county system's overall resources, which include more than 47,000 books and serial volumes, nearly 13,000 e-books, more than 3,000 audio files, and nearly 7,000 video files. Also, the library system saw more than 83,000 visitors annually, more than 132,000 items circulated, and over 10,000 registered borrowers.
