Nice shout-out for the Sonoma County Library’s maps and digital collections: sonoma_county_map

Curious about the history of your parcel or maybe how downtown Healdsburg was laid out back in the day? The Sonoma County Library has a vast collection of historic maps including township maps, plat maps, Sanborn maps and historical atlases.

A complete set of Sanborn Insurance Company maps can be found at the library on microfilm. These maps were originally created to calculate fire insurance risks in a community. Lauded by historians and preservationists alike, they are a vital component in identifying what was located where in great detail. [read full story]

hood_mountain_trail_marker-470The Sonoma County Library has partnered with Sonoma County Regional Parks to participate in this year’s Trails Challenge, which is a self-directed summer-long program encouraging people to get out into their regional parks and enjoy the outdoors.

The Sonoma County Regional Parks are publishing a Trails Challenge Guidebook which outlines the challenge.  Within the guidebook is an SCL-produced bibliography of selected titles in our libraries that might be fun reading or good information adjuncts to their excursions.

For families with children age 0-12 who complete the Trails Challenge, the Library is offering a prize—a free paperback book, available for pickup at any of our branches (except those not open for a full schedule of hours). There will be five different titles for children to choose from, including fiction, nonfiction, and bilingual. These books are funded by a mini-grant from the Sonoma County Public Library Foundation, supplemented by a grant from the Sonoma County Parks Foundation.
