What's Unique About Franklin Community Library

Franklin Community Library is cooperatively managed by both Elk Grove Unified School District and Sacramento Public Library Authority. This branch serves the students of Franklin High School, Toby Johnson Middle School, and the general public.

Library Hours

The Library is generally open before school at 7:30am, during lunch and after school until 3:30pm for Toby Johnson & Franklin High School Students. Hours are adjusted for late start Wednesdays to open at 8:30am to 3:30pm. The Franklin Community library hours extend past the regular school hours; please visit their website for more specific times.

Library Services

Our library offers many books and special materials to enhance classroom learning, plus activities and services similar to those in other public library branches: children's story time, programs for school age children and teens, as well as adult programs and workshops scheduled at various times throughout the year. The library has 66 computers for public use, some of which may be reserved by Toby Johnson and Franklin classes during school hours.

Library Rules of Conduct

All school rules apply in the library, including:

  • Food and drink - No food or liquids, other than clear water, are allowed.
  • Electronic devices - According to school policies, the use of cell phones and other electronic devices are not allowed. Students will follow EGUSD Internet policies while using computers during school hours.
  • Noise level - The library is a quiet study environment; appropriate noise level shall be determined by library staff. Small groups talking softly are acceptable. Groups are limited to the four-chair-per-table guideline.
  • Physical behavior – Quiet behaviors that promote an academic environment are expected at ALL times in the library to maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning.
  • Violations – Violations of any and/or all of the above will result in a student being asked to leave the library for the remainder of that day. A repeat offense will result in loss of additional library privileges or administrative consequences.

Library Card

Students create a Sacramento Public Library login, which differs from their EGUSD login, to be able to check out books and access computers in the library. If you are having difficulties logging in, please stop by the Library Information Desk or school counter.
