The Ella K. McClatchy Library was built in the early 1900s as a home for the McClatchy family. Later in 1940 it was donated by them to the City of Sacramento to serve as a library and as a memorial for the mother, Ella. Initially though the library was meant only for young kids, gradually it started serving people of all ages. Apart from its great collection, the architecture of the building is also worth viewing once.

Ella K. McClatchy Library Reviews & Ratings
Friendly helpful staff... Great atmosphere.
This is the best library to get work done. It quiet and underrated. It feel like your at home minus the dirty laundry. Stop by you will be happy you did.
Lovely place. Super nice staff. I come often here to study and always pleasant
I have fallen for this little library. It's an actual house that has been turned into a library. The downstairs has all of the books, printers, and study tables, and then there's the upstairs. There are three available rooms (and restroom) to use. One of them is a "no-technology" room. No phones, tablets, or laptops. Just silent reading or contemplation (as the sign says). It's my favorite room because I like to read/study in there in a nice comfy arm chair or couch. They do have a table & chair and a vintage secretary desk in there as well, but I've never needed it. (Great for a cat nap, too) 😄😄 The staff are fantastic! They let me close the door (almost all the way) so the room can be even quieter. (Noise travels up the staircase a bit.) Anyone looking for a reading room type space, this is the place.
I could see why other people liked this library but in my opinion it was one of the worst ones I've been to. Tiny, cramped, no electrical plugs (in 2018 how is this possible??), small book selection, extremely old musty building... just terrible for modern needs. Definitely just going to Sac City Library or McKinely next time. I'm sure the staff is nice though lol.
