About Us:

The Elk Grove Library was established in October 1908 as the first county "free library" in California.  The branch has been housed in several Elk Grove locations, during the past 100 years, until its current 8900 Elk Grove Boulevard site which opened December 6, 2008.

The 13,785-square-foot, city-owned, two-story building includes a group study room, a teen space, a community meeting room with an 80-seat capacity, 52 public-access computers, and a collection of thousands of books, periodicals, DVDs, CDs, and other materials.  The branch will also feature a new electronic system that displays RFID technology to speed the return processing of checked-out books and other materials.

The City of Elk Grove purchased the shell building to replace the current leased facility for the Elk Grove Library in late 2006.  In March 2007, the city contracted with Group 4 Architecture, Research + Planning to develop interior improvement construction documents for the new library facility.  In October 2007, schematic design documents were reviewed and approved by the project team, consisting of City of Elk Grove staff, library staff, and Group 4.  In November 2007, the Elk Grove City Council approved a ten-year lease agreement with the Sacramento Public Library Authority to staff and operate the library.

The Elk Grove Library serves not only Elk Grove but also neighboring communities, such as Vineyard, Wilton, Sloughhouse, and Rancho Murieta.  The library is in the heart of downtown Elk Grove. It is surrounded by several elementary schools and Elk Grove High School, all within walking distance.
