A new joint powers agreement (JPA) for the governance of the Sonoma County Library is effective August 1, 2014. This agreement was the result of a months-long review and negotiation process with participation from governments and citizens throughout the county.
With the revised JPA, the Library Commission was restructured and expanded. The membership of the Library Commission is listed on the Library Commissioners page.
The public is always welcome to attend meetings of the Library Commission.

How Do You Keep Kids Reading?
Check out our Summer Reading 2014 page for program schedules and details for summer fun at the library!
These are the years in which lifelong readers are formed, and the Library provides a place where reading is nothing but fun. Kids can build confidence reading to dogs, take part in after-school programs, get homework help and borrow chapter books with their very own library card.

Now you have a new choice for finding e-books to check out and read. You can download them to most readers. (Kindle users: works with Kindle Fire only). You can also read them online.
Some basic Q&A:
- How long does each book check out for?
- Are there overdue fines on Enki e-books?
No. The system returns the books automatically at the end of the check-out period. You will need to delete the expired files from your Adobe Digital Editions, e-reader, and/or mobile app on your mobile device.
- Can I return a book early?
YES. From the My Account page click on the Return Now button.
