About the branch

Library service in Stevenson Ranch began in July 2011 with the opening of Stevenson Ranch Express Library. In March, 2015, a new Stevenson Ranch Library opened to provide a full service library to the West Ranch communities. Library service in the Santa Clarita Valley area began in 1916 with the establishment of the original Newhall Library. The Stevenson Ranch Library pays tribute to a century of service with a local history collection and the original editorial cartoons of the Randy Wicks Collection.
