About the library
In 1975 Healdsburg City Library joined the Sonoma County Library. By the early 1980s it was clear that the Carnegie Library building was inadequate for Healdsburg’s library needs. The quest for a new library site and building was thus joined to the concept of a wine library and both had a soft opening in early October, 1988. The building's official opening and dedication took place on November 5, 1988.
