Learn About Our Mission


Our mission is to bring information, ideas, and people together to build a stronger community.


Sonoma County Library is the heart of our community. We are known for our innovation and connection to residents and communities.

Our libraries are destination places because of our friendly, knowledgeable staff and welcoming, comfortable spaces. We love books, reading, and exploration and we ignite that passion in others. We are a community hub where learning, the arts, technology, and people intersect and thrive. We help people and organizations develop, learn, and connect. Children inspire us, and we work tirelessly to improve the grades and the overall quality of life of Sonoma County’s youngsters.

We love books and reading and exploration and we want to ignite that passion in others. Our staff is known throughout the community for being engaged, empowered, energized, and ubiquitous! We use technology to make things easier, more accessible, and more fun. If we don’t have what you need now, we’ll find it and get it soon.

Come visit us today. After you visit, you’ll be eager to come back!
