Yolo County Library

Mission, Vision, History


Yolo County Library provides access for all to ideas that inform, entertain and inspire. We connect people and ideas.


The Yolo County Library strives to bring diverse and dynamic programs and services to its many communities and residents through innovation, communication, engagement, collaboration and diversity, providing opportunities for everyone to read, grow, discover and interact with one another and the world at large.


Yolo County is one of California’s original 27 counties and is home to over 215,000 people. Nearly 85% of the population lives in the County’s four cities: Davis, West Sacramento, Winters and Woodland.

Yolo County is located on the west side of the Sacramento River with farming and ranching activities playing an important role in making this county one of the leading agricultural producers in the nation.

Yolo County Library serves seven communities and the rural areas of Yolo County, and provides public library services to all areas of the County except the City of Woodland, which independently provides a public library. Branch libraries are located in Clarksburg, Davis, Esparto, Knights Landing, West Sacramento, Winters and Yolo. Library Administration and Technical Services operations are located in Woodland.
