Windsor Library Celebrates 20 Years

Windsor Regional Library invites the residents of the City of Windsor and the residents of Sonoma County to a celebration on November 12, 2016 from 1-3pm in the Windsor Library Forum Room to mark the 20 year anniversary of the Library opening the doors at its current location of 9291 Old Redwood Highway in Windsor.

To mark the event, the library is hosting a celebration that will include music, refreshment, speeches by notable local figures and special door prizes. 

Although the celebration marks the 20 years that the Windsor Regional Library has occupied its current location, the Windsor Library Association actually started over 114 years ago. The Association has had many faces since then and the library has been in many locations. Here are a few notable dates:

1950 - There was a County Library outlet at Windsor.

1991 - Bookmobile service provided to Windsor, previously reliant on Healdsburg and Santa Rosa’s Northwest and Central Libraries.

1996 - Windsor Regional Library opened.

2016 - The Windsor Regional Library offers more than ever, free with a library card. 

Did you know that Windsor Regional Library has a mobile app? Streaming movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks and comics through Hoopla Digital?  Computers for public use and free wifi?  Work and school research databases and other library materials available from your home computer? Fun and educational programs for all ages at the library in addition to book clubs and homework help? 

This event is free and open to all. For more information contact Bill Coolidge at
