The Buena Park Library District is an independent special district that was
organized in 1919 under the Education Code of California, Sections
19600-19734. Special districts are a form of local government that were
created by their constituents to meet specific service needs for their
community. This free public library, governed by a five-member elected
library board, provides equal access to library services for all community
residents. No effort is spared to maximize services at the best value to the
taxpayers of the District.
Basic library services are always provided free of charge and costs of selected peripheral programs are held to a minimum. Well-trained library professionals are employed to bring people and the resources of the Library together. The Library presents and makes its facilities available for a variety of children and adult programming, and prioritizes the materials and services based on the needs of the Buena Park community. Although the District’s official boundaries total 12.4 miles, residents and students from the surrounding cities also enjoy the various library services offered.
The Volunteer Guild, the Library’s support group, works diligently to provide supplemental funding for programs for children, teens and adults and for other important library services to its community. The Guild Book Store is located on the second floor of the Library.
The Buena Park Library District is committed to meeting the information
needs of its culturally diverse community.
