The Future of Roseland Library 

& March for Trans Rights

Feb 27, 2019


An Uncertain Future for Roseland Library

KBBF board member Caroline Bañuelos, who is also a member of Santa Rosa Together, and Pat Kuta of the Roseland Library Coalition have been covering the saga of the Roseland branch of the Sonoma County Library. Their January 30th article in the Press Democrat, “Close to Home: Roseland Library Seeks a Home,” outlined the challenges facing this branch. 

Despite high usage and passionate support from the community it serves, this library’s future is uncertain. In part, this is due to the recent annexation of Roseland. The area was neglected for many years and now falls squarely under the responsibility of Santa Rosa governance. This means the city could and should help the branch find a permanent location and provide part of the funds required to rent or own a building. 

Kuta and Bañuelos urge the City of Santa Rosa to step up, explaining, “This library is a tangible demonstration of the city’s intention to invest in its newest neighborhood and address its promise to provide services in parity with the rest of our city. Generations of broken promises in Roseland shouldn’t continue. We want a permanent library for this underserved neighborhood.”
