At the Library


There is more to do at the Library than you might ever imagine! The Library is overflowing with ideas, information, activities and services.

Here are just a few of the services the Library offers:

  • We have more than 90,000 books and Audiobooks in our collection. If you cannot find what you are looking for in our system, we are part of a large-scale consortia that allows patrons to borrow from the millions of materials circulated by the Sacramento Public Library, Woodland Public Library, Sutter County Library and Folsom Public Library systems.
  • If you still cannot find what you are looking for, we provide Inter Library Loan services. We work with libraries across the nation to borrow individual titles for our patrons.
  • Are you in your car a lot? Check out an Audiobook or CD to make your travel time more enjoyable.
  • In the mood for a movie? We have a wide variety of DVD's available for check out.
