The library began in a retired book mobile permanently located in our local park. When the high school was built the Hemet Unified School District and LSSI came together and the first LSSI Joint-Use library opened on September 7, 1999. We offer a variety of programs designed to appeal to both the community and students such as Preschool story time, teen reading circle and a monthly book club to name a few. As a Joint-Use library we feel we have the unique opportunity to install in the students the importance of the library and its many services. Anza runs on to sets of hours, the first one starts in the fall and is based around the school hours and the second set changes for the summer, allowing the Anza library to be open longer in order to serve the community during the Summer Reading Program.
