The physical location of the Home Gardens Library is picturesque, with rolling hills directly behind the building and with more hills engulfing the landscape; the Home Gardens Library is beautiful. Large windows allow for the cascading light of the sun to breathe life into the building. Thus, creating a warm environment for patrons and community members.

Accessibility to HGA is fantastic. Directly adjacent to the library is a bus stop for both the RTA and Corona Cruiser. Recently, a signal light has been placed at the intersection of Neece Street and Magnolia Avenue, which has immensely improved traffic flow and safety for our patrons. Now, for the first time since Home Gardens opened, patrons can safely cross Magnolia Avenue.

At the Home Gardens Library we value trust, respect, honesty, integrity and teamwork. We strive to create a welcome environment that fosters creativity, success, growth and excellence for our customers and our staff. We recognize the diversity in our community as well as the social, economic, racial and cultural complexities of our patrons. We also recognize the need for empathy, patience, humility and sincerity in working with the community. We provide an unbiased team respects the community and works together to create a safe space for all.
