The Sonoma County History & Genealogy Library, a special collection of the Sonoma County Library system, which is dedicated to collecting and preserving local history as well genealogical materials of a national and international focus, will close temporarily starting August 27, 2018, as the building it occupies receives much-needed upgrades.
Starting September 4th, one-on-one reference service will be available at the Santa Rosa Central Library at 211 E Street, Monday through Saturday from 1 PM to 5 PM. Materials from the collection will be retrieved upon request.
Volunteers from the Sonoma County Genealogical Society will also be available to assist members of the public on Wednesdays and Fridays between 1 PM to 4 PM in the main Central Library reading area. Sign-ups at the Central reference desk encouraged.
When we return to the “Annex” it will be to freshly painted walls and ceilings, functional heating and air conditioning system, improved lighting, new microfilm readers and public computers; more data and electrical outlets, a slight reconfiguration of the reference desks and staff and processing areas and more!
