Facility Master Plan

Serving the community since 1905, Woodland Public Library provides a wide range of library resources and services through the library and at a variety of outreach settings. Located in the Central Valley, the Woodland Public Library has the distinction of being the oldest and one of the last functioning Carnegie-funded libraries in California. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. The original Carnegie Library building opened in 1905 with expansions in 1915, 1927, and 1988.

Materials & Programs

In 2017, the Library served almost 180,000 visitors and circulated over 300,000 books, DVDs, audio-books, and electronic resources. In addition to reading and viewing materials, the Library engages the community with a robust schedule of programming and outreach for children, teens, and adults. In the summer of 2017, the Library opened a new 1,600 square foot makerspace and community learning lab named "Square One."

Community Input

The Library has completed the process to gather community input to shape a long-term master plan for its facility to guide how the library can best serve its community for future generations. The Library anticipates that the Facility Master Plan will form the foundation of a future building program for the expansion and / or renovation of the existing library to meet the community's learning needs, abilities, demographics, and changes in technology.
