Located on the grounds of the Bates Elementary School, the Courtland Community Library serves the school children and the citizens of the town of Courtland and the surrounding fifteen square miles. The Courtland Library has a history going back to 1909. For almost 10 years it was operated by volunteers from the community-members of the Courtland Affiliate of the Friends of the Sacramento Public Library. Recently the volunteers applied for and received Community Block Grant funding for the development of a new building.
In partnership with the River Delta Unified School District, the Courtland Library will enhance service to children by circulation materials from the Bates Elementary School and by providing access to the complete holdings of the Sacramento Public Library to all users. The branch is now offering free Internet access to the community as well as word processing software.
The Friends of the Courtland Library continue to provide volunteer service to the library and will pursue their fundraising efforts to support the branch materials collection and programming for children and adults.
