Library History

Friendly El Monte, the End of the Santa Fe Trail, was incorporated in 1912. The city was once home to Gay’s Lion Farm during the 1930s and famous for the roaring lion on MGM’s logo.

The El Monte Library was founded in 1890, and joined the Los Angeles County Public Library in 1913. It has been at its present location since 1967.
