History of SCL

The Solano County Library was established by the Board of Supervisors in 1914. The County Library resided in a number of locations until it moved to its first permanent home in Fairfield at the corner of Union and Texas streets in 1931 – now a historical gem located adjacent to the new County Administration Center. Over the years, the seven cities in the County joined, left, merged or affiliated with the Library. Read more.
