Rocklin Library History:

The Rocklin Branch Library opened February 1943 in the lower floor of the City Hall Building. It was open six hours a 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 2009/10 to expand the library for the growing city. The new 2 story, 16,600 square foot Rocklin Library opened January 2011 on Granite Drive.

Rocklin Friends of the Library:

In 1976, a small group of library patrons started seeking funding for a new library. During 1981 a proposal was made and a city-wide campaign conducted which gathered 750 families in a community of 6,000. The Rocklin Friends of the Library (RFOL) became a 501c(3) non-profit corporation in 1983.

Their mission is to generate community interest and support of library services and facilities, to promote reading and the library, and to promote and encourage charitable gifts.
