Sun City Library service began with a weekly bookmobile visit almost as soon as the first residents moved into the new Del Webb Seniors community in 1962, and by 1965 the county leased a storefront of 1100 square feet for the first library. Three expansions brought the space to 4000 square feet by 1990, but this proved inadequate as population increased in the surrounding Menifee area. The county purchased a bank building, the Sun City Library Foundation raised $150,000 to furnish it, and a new library opened in December, 1994. The present library of nearly 11,000 square feet was built on the site and dedicated in 2010. It is the principal library serving the now incorporated city of Menifee's 80,000 residents.
