Library service has always been important for residents of Highland. From 1994 to 2001 residents of Highland and Alpine were served by a joint-use facility at Mountain Ridge Jr. High. In 2008 Highland City built a new city hall and dedicated a portion of the building for a city library. The Highland City Library opened October 25, 2008 with a collection of about 25,000 books. The Library now houses over 50,000 items, provides access to over 200,000 e-books/audiobooks, and provides a wide range of programs for all ages.
