About the Library
The Rocklin Library is located next to a pond that regularly hosts visitors such as geese, ducks, squirrels, and other local wildlife. Extensive study and workspaces for children and adults can be found throughout the library’s two floors, many of which offer views of the pond area. The first floor of the library is organized as a family space, featuring an extensive children’s collection and seating spaces along with a train table. Several public computers and work areas can be found on this floor too, along with reservable community room; the room is flexible and able to be configured into two smaller spaces using the movable walls. The upstairs space houses the teen and adult collections, as well as more public computers and reading and work areas.

History of Rocklin Library
The Rocklin Library opened February 1943 in the lower floor of the City Hall Building. It was open 6 hours per week. In May 1965, the library was moved across the road and hours increased to 24 per week. Through the combined efforts of the Friends of the Rocklin Library, the City of Rocklin, and the County of Placer, plus Federal funding through the California State Library, a new 5,264 square foot branch library was built and dedicated April 28, 1985.
This facility was located at 5460 Fifth Street in Johnson-Springview Park. The Friends of the Rocklin Library, the City of Rocklin, and the County of Placer partnered again in 2009 to 2010 to expand the library for the growing city. The current location is a leased two story, 16,600 square foot Rocklin Library that opened January 2011 on Granite Drive.
