Fallbrook Library

Fallbrook Library

The concept of a "library" has evolved to mean more than just a repository for books and old documents. Today's libraries are centers of learning and research,  providing electronic access to a world of information, as well as printed texts.
The new Fallbrook Library is all of these, as well as a community gathering place, an art-filled showplace that is the centerpiece of the community. The building itself is a work of art created by local artists and artisans.
The Reading Garden, Children’s area, Teen Room, Poet’s Patio, Computer Center, and meeting rooms for small groups are among many other features are in constant use. The popular Bottom Shelf Bookstore, managed by the Friends of the Fallbrook Library, sells gently used books and other media to benefit library programs.
