The library is being funded directly under the Office of the Mayor. Since its foundation in 1967, it has grown to become the center of learning for the people of Malabon as it caters to all walks to life. In 1995, it was relocated to its current address in Justice Compound because the city mayor believes that the library should be reachable to the people.

Being manned by 12 personnel, the library offers many programs and activities such as: Book Mobile to public schools and barangay libraries, Story-telling session, Film-showing of book-to-movie-adaptations, puppet-shows, parol-making, Valentine’s day card making, Halloween costume competition, and feeding-program and gift-giving.
