The Sylvan Oaks Library is a local Citrus Heights library that provides services to residents of all ages under the jurisdiction of the Sacramento Public Library Authority.
Since November 2002, the City and Sacramento Public Library
have been partnering to enhance service levels at Sylvan Oaks Library
. The City approves supplemental funding to allow Sylvan Oaks Library to be open four (4) more hours each week than any other library in the county.
Through the years, Sylvan Oaks Library has seen circulation, programs and attendance increase dramatically. The City Council is proud to support these enhanced services as a means to improve quality of life in Citrus Heights for our residents. The City and Sacramento Public Library have partnered on many projects such as increased library hours and improved technology, for example:
- 13 additional hours per week of library services to the community (year to year);
- The purchase of two (2) early childhood literacy computers;
- The purchase of one (1) computer workstation for the visually impaired;
- The purchase of some merchandising furniture / display fixtures;
- The purchase of laptop computer lab (20 computers and 1 printer); and
- Creation of consistent opening hours of operation on Friday and Saturday (an addition of four hours of service every week).
