Library Growth

Discover our journey from a single-room library in the late 1980s to our current four-room building with full-time staff. We extend our gratitude to Tribal and General Council members, Palomar Community College, California State University, San Marcos, San Diego County Libraries, tribal communities, and the Institute of Museums and Library Services for their support in our growth.

Library Experience

Connecting Community, Fostering
Growth, and Expressing Gratitude

From the late 1980s to now the Pauma Library has grown with the tribe. Originally housed in one room that acted as a college classroom, library, afterschool program, and counselor’s office, the library now occupies a four-room building with full-time staff serving the tribe. Early volunteers and workers paved the way for the operation that exists now.

The library is grateful to the Tribal and General Council members who have supported the library throughout its history. Without the vital participation of Palomar Community College, California State University, San Marcos and San Diego County Libraries, surrounding tribal communities, and the Institute of Museums and Library Services, none of the growth present could have taken place
