I really admire Sonoma County Library’s Reimagining Plan. It feels gratifying to work for an organization that truly believes in the value of diversity in all of its forms.

Christina Hanson

Christina H., Librarian II

I love getting to come in to work each day and order library materials that bring joy to our patrons or might fill an important information need they have. And doing this work alongside such engaged and passionate coworkers across the organization makes our collection so much better!

Jonathan Ridley

Jonathan R., Building Mechanic II

My appreciation for the Sonoma County Library started during childhood when I would ride my bicycle to the Central Santa Rosa Library. I also remember how exciting it was to experience color computers for the first time at the newly inaugurated Rincon Valley Regional Library! As an SCL employee, I enjoy a sense of accomplishment performing repairs/maintenance in all 17 library facilities.
