Signal Hill Public Library will close at 3:00 PM on Saturday, October 29th for the Halloween Carnival.
Signal Hill Public Library Has Moved!
To make way for construction of the new library
building, Signal Hill Public Library has relocated to
temporary quarters in the Signal Hill Community
Center (just past the basketball courts). The library
still offers all of its services including books, DVDs,
computers, interlibrary loans, storytime, and book
club. Come visit us at our new location!
Patrons may request books and other materials that are not available at the Signal Hill Library through our Inter-library Loan Program. Two FREE requests per month thereafter $2.00.
Local telephone directories, online periodical index, tax forms, consumer research and local history articles are available to patrons. The library also has a well-rounded collection of popular reading materials including many bestsellers.
