About Healdsburg Regional Library

Early Healdsburg Libraries

There were several libraries in Healdsburg before the City of Healdsburg took control of the library and made it part of city hall in 1896.

In 1911, the City of Healdsburg received a grant from the Carnegie Foundation to build a new library. A total of 2,509 Carnegie libraries were built throughout the world between 1883 and 1929, including four in Sonoma County: Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, Sonoma, and Petaluma. All except the Santa Rosa building still stand.

From 1911 to 1988, the Greek Revival building at the corner of Fitch and Matheson served as the town library. Many Healdsburgers have fond memories of this library, which still serves the city as its museum.

The Odyssey for a New Library Building

In 1975, Healdsburg City Library joined the Sonoma County Library system. By the early 1980s, it was clear that the Carnegie library building was inadequate for Healdsburg’s needs, and the search for a new library site began. At one point, seven different sites were considered.

The Current Home and the Wine Library

The Sonoma County Wine Library was an idea nurtured by Millie Howie, a local writer and publicist. Born from the formation of the Russian River Wine Road, Howie suggested a wine library that would be a special asset for the area wine industry, supported by the industry itself.

The quest for a new library site and building was thus joined to the concept of a wine library and the building’s official opening and dedication took place on November 5, 1988.
