The Hercules Library is a state-of-the-art facility built collaboratively by the City of Hercules, the State of California, and Contra Costa County. In addition, civic organizations and individuals provided substantial donations to support its construction, which was completed in November 2006. The library’s architecture gorgeously and effectively provides library users with a diverse range of spaces; some areas feel meditative, others invigorating. The library's 21,500 square feet include a Teen Homework Center, two meeting rooms, three study rooms, a Sky Garden, a Children's Garden, a children's story area called the Story Cone, the Friends of the Hercules Library Bookstore, and a reading area with comfortable seating around a fireplace.
The Hercules Library receives support from the Hercules Community and Library Services Commission, the Hercules Library Foundation, and the Friends of the Hercules Library.
