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.
All staff of the Shasta Public Libraries
