Expanding and Moving
The Roseland Community Library continues to grow to serve the southwest Santa Rosa area. After more than three years occupying an interim space in a former furniture store, with limited hours and challenging conditions, the library is moving and expanding!
In June, the Sonoma County Library signed a six-year lease for a new branch library at 470 Sebastopol Road, in the heart of Roseland. While we wait for the current tenants to find a new location, we are planning our new library, with more hours, more space, more programs, more staff and more everything that the Roseland community has advocated for the last few years. We anticipate the new branch library will open early next year.
While the new library will be a wonderful step forward, we have even bigger dreams. The Sonoma County Library is working actively with the City of Santa Rosa, the County of Sonoma, the Roseland Library Coalition, the Sonoma County Public Library Foundation, and other partners on a vision for a permanent library in Roseland. By working closely with our partners and community we will create a full-service library that is truly the heart of the Roseland community.
The Sonoma County Library would like to thank our library supporters for their advocacy in creating a Roseland Community Library. We look forward to continuing to meet the needs of our community in achieving our next steps of this dream.
Please take a minute to complete a survey and let us know what you need from your local library. We'll be moving the current Roseland Community Library to a new location in early 2020 and will be open more hours.
