Library Service in Thousand Palms started as two Bookmobile stops: the Post Office and Tri Palms Mobile Home Park. In February 1994, a Volunteer Library Station was dedicated in the Community Room of the Chamber of Commerce Building. Offering three afternoons of service, the staff consisted of volunteers and the books were donated from other branch libraries - many older and worn copies. The shared space was also used to serve senior lunches.
Dedicated in September 2006, the current 5,484 sq. ft. facility was built by Riverside County Economic Development Agency. Located adjacent to the Community Center, the library serves as a centralized hub for residents, as well as visitors. Fundraising by dedicated Building Fund Volunteers provided additional revenue for wireless Internet connectivity and several upgrades in library furnishings. Named after Art Samson, the tireless leader of the Building Fund and Friends group, this community library prides itself in offering quality materials and programs for all ages.
