The Robbie Waters Pocket-Greenhaven Library opened on August 28, 2010. In addition to serving the general public as a branch of the Sacramento Public Library, our library shares its facilities with the School of Engineering & Sciences, an open-enrollment school serving 7th through 12th grade students who would like to pursue careers in engineering and sciences.
Strongly supported by the community and the Friends of the Library, the library branch holds a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver accreditation for its many ecological design elements, including recycled materials, drought-tolerant landscaping, and motion sensor lighting.
The branch also features two areas especially for youth. The enclosed teen area offers booth seating, five computers, and tables featuring electrical outlets for easy use of portable technology. The Ready to Read Room is for the youngest library patrons, those from newborns to 5 years old, and provides a variety of early-literacy activity stations. This room was funded in part by a generous donation by the Fong family in memory of Michelle Fong Beam.
