McKinley Library

The McKinley Library is temporarily closed. It is located in the north wing of the Clunie Clubhouse in lovely McKinley Park. The art-deco styled building opened in 1936. The library interior has been maintained with its original walnut paneling and Stickley furnishings. The marble fireplace is the focal point for the Children's area.

Weekly preschool storytime encouraged young readers to come to the library. A Friends of the McKinleyy Library group met the first Tuesday of every other month, and all interested members of the community were invited to attend.

There were five Internet stations available for public use. Four of these stations offered a variety of Microsoft Office products. The other station was a 20-minute express machine.

The collection of approximately 45,000 volumes is geared to meet the needs of the communities of East Sacramento, Midtown, and River Park. A superior gardening collection and many fine books on decorating and the home are well used by the local residents. A unique collection on the Arts and Crafts Era, with an emphasis on California bungalows, adds a special dimension to this wonderful neighborhood library.

If you're ever in the area, stop by, relax, gaze out at the park greenery, check out a good book and then stroll through the rose garden.
