The first library in Riverside County was built in Perris in 1882, in Henry Akin's general store on D St. When the Riverside County Library System was formed in 1911, the first collection was sent to Perris, and a new building was built on 4th St. shortly afterward, in 1916. The Library moved again several times through the years, from the old Library to City Hall, then to a former Post Office building at 424 D St., and finally to its current 20,000 square foot building on San Jacinto in 1994. It remains a vigorous, dynamic center of the community, and its staff works hard to build firm connections to city residents, and to deliver exciting, innovative programs and services.
