"Unlock the Doors to Your Mind"
Solano County Library is a progressive and innovative library with secure funding and widespread support from the community. The Library serves the community with eight branches and virtual services in five of the seven cities in Solano County with a staff of 111 FTE. With its strategic location, affordable housing, natural resources, and historical significance, Solano County is a growing community with a promising future as a place to live, learn, work and play. There is an abundance of open space to hike, bike, camp, and explore as well as coastal access for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, and fishing. Residing midway between the Bay Area and the Sacramento metropolitan regions and neighboring the Napa Valley, residents enjoy the leisurely options of taking a ferry to San Francisco, train to downtown Sacramento or riding their bikes through valleys of vineyards and over the hill to Napa.
Solano County Library is guided in its mission to enrich the lives of the people in the County by a Strategic Plan, which is community focused, staff inspired, and outreach oriented. To realize these goals over the next several years, the Library has committed to embracing a spirit of flexibility and experimentation as we examine our current organizational structure and enact changes that will permit us to focus our services in response to community desires. At Solano County Library, we are the people, places, and services that spark curiosity, inspire creativity, and champion learning.
