Ella K. McClatchy Library

Tourists love this little library, and Sacramento locals treasure it. The Ella K. McClatchy Library is a converted historic home that maintains its romantic vintage charm. The downstairs holds all the wonderful books, as well as plenty of lovely study tables. Upstairs there are three more rooms for guests to use—the most magical probably being the no-technology room, where there are no phones, laptops, tablets, or the like allowed. All you need is a good read and to snag one of the comfy chairs to sit back in.

Ella K. McClatchy Library, 2112 22nd Street, Sacramento, CA, USA, +1 916 264 2700

The South Natomas Library beautifully combines posh with cozy to make an amazing space. Not only does the interior drip with literary wonderment and carries a welcoming elegance, but it’s also incredibly kid friendly. Just behind the library is a lovely playground for some outdoor fun, as well as a rose garden that’s perfect for wandering.

This adorable little library is a slice of heaven. The space is quaint yet still holds on to all the needed resources that make libraries great. Opened in 1936, the art deco building has kept its beautiful original furnishings and walnut wood paneling.
