More than 2,200 truck lovers checked out our big utility trucks at Big Trucks Summer in 2016, and nearly 7,000 local students participated in our Planet Protectors school programs. Family drop-in attendance rose by 43% as our program offerings continue to grow. Read about all this and more in the Roseville Utility Exploration Center Annual Report, available now.
New Days of Operation for Utility Exploration Center
Beginning July 1, 2017, the Roseville Utility Exploration Center’s days of operation will be Monday – Thursday and Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm. The Center will be closed on Friday and Sunday. The new schedule aligns our days of operation with new hours for the Martha Riley Library, located in the same building. All Roseville libraries and the Maidu Museum & Historic Site will also be closed on Fridays. The new library schedule is being implemented as part of a City budget balancing measure for Fiscal Year 2018, which is subject to City Council review in June.
