The Banning Library now has a
Drive-up Book drop in the parking lot!

Pardon Our Dust!
We apologize for the inconvience, but portions of the library are going to be closed off.

On the week of July 20 to Saturday July 25, portions of the library will be closed for carpet installation.  Computers will still be available for patrons.


On June 10, 2015
The Banning Library Trustees reviewed qualified bids and chose
Pro Care Landscaping Services, to take further action to meet Governor Brown's mandate of water reduction.

This will include removal of all lawn areas and haul away. 

  • Replace irrigation with drip system,
  • Install 23      5 gallon drought tolerant plants 
  • 21    1 gallon plants 
  • Install 31 yards of D-G with plastic liners  
  • Boulders throughout new landscaping areas.
The Banning Library Trustees feel they should be setting a good example for the City of Banning.
