    The most distinguishing feature of the current location of the Arcade Library is the architecture. The library is built partially into the ground and has a distinctive blue tile roof. A remodel, completed in 2005, refurbished the building, providing more space for teens, a reading room for periodicals, new carpeting and furniture, and a design conducive to improved customer service. The Donald Dean Watson Community Room was named in honor of the donor who bequeathed $100,000 for the remodel.

    Arcade Library serves an urbanized commercial and residential area with a population of approximately 50,000 people. The library's collection consists of roughly 80,000 items. These include books, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs, and CD- and DVD-ROMs. The 27 computers available for public use also provide Internet access. The community room may be scheduled for non-commercial purposes.

    Arcade Library has one of the larger collections of Russian-language materials in the Sacramento Public Library system. There are also smaller collections of Spanish, Persian, and Chinese-language materials. The library has a full-time children's librarian who provides both preschool and school-age programming. The Library Literacy program, serving all of Sacramento County, is based here. Room is made available even during library closed hours for tutoring pairs to use. They offer family and adult programs regularly, as well.
