Elk Grove Library Relocation

Library services in the City (and broader Sacramento County) are provided by the Sacramento Public Library Authority.  Each community is responsible for providing the physical space for public libraries within its jurisdiction. SPL then occupies and operates library services. Elk Grove residents are currently served by two libraries within the City – the Elk Grove Branch in Old Town Elk Grove and the Franklin Branch, which is co-located with Franklin High School.

In 2006, the City facilitated the relocation of the Elk Grove branch to 8900 Elk Grove Boulevard.  This facility, at the time, provided more space for the library and placed it at a prominent corner entering Old Town.  However, the parking and two-story configuration, along with the high operating cost, have been problematic for customers, SPL, and the City.  As documented in a 2018 study, the community has outgrown this site and new location is needed for the Elk Grove branch.

In early 2021, the City acquired the former Rite Aid building at 9260 Elk Grove Boulevard.  The City and SPL are beginning design work for relocation of the Elk Grove library to this site.


Join us in designing the new library!

Several public outreach opportunities are planned during the design phase, including public events and a survey.  Signup for email notifications at the top of this page to be alerted to these events and for other updates during the process.
