Closed until May 1, 2019

The Yolo County Archives and Records Center will be closed Oct. 1

The Yolo County Archives and Records Center will be undergoing extensive renovation this Fall. To protect both the historic Archival Collection and the items stored in the Records Center, these collections will be moved off-site and stored in secured, climate controlled facilities. Accordingly, public service hours will be suspended beginning October 1, 2018 until the project is completed. We anticipate this renovation project to be completed by May 1, 2019.

For more information, contact County Librarian and Chief Archivist, Mark Fink at mark.fink@yolocounty.org
