About Friends of the Library
Sacramento Public Library is the fourth largest library system in California with 28 locations serving 1.4M urban, suburban and rural residents. In addition to lending books, Sacramento Public Library offers services and programming focused on early learning, technology, and creation and is committed to providing Sacramento communities with welcoming community spaces.
Sacramento Public Library is an essential resource for our communities.
Sacramento Public Library inspires our communities to discover, learn and grow.
Sacramento Public Library affirms all members of the community have the right to achieve their full potential and greatest aspirations, notwithstanding status or identifiers, such as race, as a predictor of life outcomes.
We recognize Sacramento’s history of racism and the history of systemic racism within libraries in the United States. We commit to representing our diverse community, providing equitable access to resources, and actively supporting anti-racism. We will listen and work with our communities to identify and address barriers to library resources due to institutional and structural racism.
