Celebrate Murrieta History at the Library

MURRIETA, CA – Beginning May 18th, the Murrieta Public Library will begin a five-day celebration highlighting Murrieta history and spotlighting its Heritage Room Collection. The Heritage Room contains hundreds of items of local historical interest, over a thousand photographic images, as well as research collections donated by local authors and Juan Murrieta family members. For this special week, the Room will have a staff member on hand for daily two-hour blocks, for tours and viewings of these local artifacts and historical documents.

On Tuesday, May 19th, the Library is pleased to have longtime resident, historian and co-author of “Murrieta (Images of America)”, Marvin Curran, as a special guest, who will answer questions on Murrieta history at 5:30 p.m. in the Heritage Room.

Special displays of local history will be on view during this week, and selected photographs from the E. Hale Curran Collection will be hung on the Library’s walls for permanent exhibition.

The history of a city cannot be created without its residents. As such, the Library invites community members to “tell their story”: if you have grown up in Murrieta, experienced its transformation and would like to get your oral history recorded for prosperity, please contact Adult Services Librarian Laura Davis at to make an appointment. Also, if you have items of local historical interest that you would like to loan and display at the Library during this week, please contact Ms. Davis by May 12th.

During the week of May 18th - 22nd, the Heritage Room will be open for tours and questions during the following hours: Monday and Tuesday, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., and Friday, 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Commemorative puzzles depicting the Murrieta Public Library will be given to the first 50 participants who arrive during these hours.
