The Temple City Library is a beautiful place where you will enjoy spending an afternoon. The 12,182-square foot building is home to an extensive book collection along with archives and other materials. A family place is also located inside the library so the little ones have a place of their own. The most unique aspect of this facility is the mural that adorns the outer wall. Painted by Temple City students, the painting is over eight feet tall and 28 feet wide. This mural depicts the culture and community spirit of this charming city.
