Yolo County Library

New Yolo Branch Library Building

The Yolo Branch Library, located near the center of the County, was originally constructed in 1918. Inspections of the historic Yolo Branch Library identified structural concerns that necessitated discontinuing long-term use of this structure.

A temporary modular building was located next to the original facility, which provided library services until March 2022. Beginning in April 2022, limited library services are being offered out of Cache Creek High School.

A new Yolo Branch is now under construction, with an anticipated opening in Fall 2022.
