The River Road - Santa Clara Volunteer Library is a non-profit organization that began in 2003 with the mission of establishing and maintaining library services for the River Road - Santa Clara community.

Knowing the importance of library accessibility to the health and well being of any community a small, dedicated group of local citizens spent numerous hours sifting and sorting through thousands of books to start a library in the River Road - Santa Clara area. The doors opened in June of 2005 and now thirty thousand people who live in the River Road and Santa Clara neighborhoods have access to low cost library services that were previously unavailable.

There are now over 15,000 books and other materials, including audio books, available for library patrons. Visit our ABOUT page to learn more about joining.
