The Arlanza Library opened its doors on November 13, 2010. The 10,000 square foot library has over 80 computers for public use and houses a starting collection of more than 11, 750 items. The library has the distinction of being built on the site of what was once part of Camp Anza. Camp Anza housed many soldiers during World War II and served as a military staging area for the United States Army.
The Arlanza Library is the first library in the Riverside Public Library System to use an RFID (radio frequency material identification) system to circulate materials. This new technology allows for a faster and more efficient customer check-out and self-check-out system.
The library offers a Community Room equipped with state of the art screening equipment and partners with non-profit Smooth Transition to offer free computer and life skills classes.
After School Activities and other events: Check the library calendar (PDF).

The library provides the ability to print from the public computers via SAM (Smart Access Manager). You may maintain up to a $20.00 balance on your SAM account.
