"The first known public library to serve the Loomis community was established in January 1899 by the Loomis Library Association. By the following spring, the library had doubled in size. There was no librarian and books were loaned out on the honor system.
As demand for books in Loomis grew, the Placer County Library in Auburn was contacted and a Loomis Branch Library was established in 1937.
The Loomis Branch Library continued to expand and a new building, dedicated August 24, 1980, was built on Library Drive."

In March 2015, the Placer County Library Director made recommendations to close the Loomis Branch Library. The Mayor of Loomis formed an ad hoc committee to explore alternative options and the most recent recommendations were made May 10, 2016 to the Town Council: Staff Report
The Loomis Town Council voted unanimously in support of a first reading to place a 1/4 cent Transaction and Use tax measure on the November 2016 ballot so residents can vote to support the Loomis Library. The Town is preparing to withdraw from the Placer County library system to establish the Loomis Library Community Learning Center which will be locally controlled and operated.
The Friends of the Loomis Library will play a critical part in the formation of the Loomis Library Community Learning Center, and we need your help! Please join us in the unique opportunity to build the future Library for Loomis.
This is still a work in progress and the future is far from certain but one thing that hasn't changed since 1899...
the Loomis community values and cherishes its library!
