Burney Library

37116 Main St. • Burney, CA 96013 View Map

Come check out the new building.

The original Burney Branch Library opened in 1949, the first of the Shasta County Library Branches. A new home was built in 1969 on Siskiyou Street, where it remained until July 31st, 2020. Through hard work and dedication, the Burney Library has been able to move into a larger building on Main Street which opened on August 15th, 2020. Here new stories will be told by a community that has worked so hard for many years and will finally see their long-awaited dream come true.

Burney serves the entire Intermountain area from Montgomery Creek and Round Mountain to Hat Creek and Oak Run and east to Fall River and McArthur.

Old Building Closed July 31st, 2020

The old building on Siskiyou Street served its community for 51 years. It was a central point for teachers, parents, and local businesses who have used the library's resources for many years.

The Old Burney Library has written the final chapter in a fantastic book. Included in this magnificent novel are stories of families, friends, and colleagues; all who have utilized the library in one way or another. The library has seen much and has garnered quite a collection over the years. We celebrated the passing of the torch to the new building  on August 15th, 2020.

There have many changes to Burney; buildings change, people move in and out, and loved ones pass on. Despite these changes, the library has always been there as a center for hope, knowledge, and a safe place during hard times.

To the old library on Siskiyou Street, we say thank you.
