The St. Helena Public Library supports every stage of life and personal development by providing space and opportunities for civic engagement, education, learning experiences, and enrichment. Our goal is to maintain and continue to achieve the best in library services by managing our resources wisely, preparing for the future, and being responsive to the changing landscape of the community we serve.

The City of St. Helena has a long history of public support for library service. As early as 1875 there was movement underway to establish a library. The current building at 1492 Library Lane was constructed in 1979 and named for a much loved local physician, Dr. George Wood, who was also a major donor and long time supporter of the library.

The library currently houses some 96,000 books, videos, DVD’s, books on CD and tape, CDs, newspapers, magazines, microfilm and other media. Also part of the library collection is the Napa Valley Wine Library, consisting of some 3,500 titles and over 6,000 items. The world famous Robert Louis Stevenson Museum is housed in a wing of the Library Building.
