About Northwest Santa Rosa Library

Prior to Coddingtown Mall construction, the region in which the Northwest Library resides was farmland largely devoted to prune orchards. A 1963 General Plan called for building three Santa Rosa libraries, in addition to a Central library. Three years later focus turned to a library to serve the northwest Santa Rosa area. The shopping center’s location was chosen for its easy freeway access and plentiful parking.

The 8,000-square-foot one-story building opened October 14, 1968 with a collection of 13,000 books. A mural commissioned to honor the memory of a beloved children’s librarian, Janet Guerrini, was dedicated in November 1995.
