Friends of the Library

I am going to be starting a series of blogs about my local community clubs and organizations that meet with the purpose of making our town a better place by reaching out to those around us. I’m starting with the Friends of the Applegate Library. This fantastic group has open membership and even includes some junior members. The mission of the group is to provide ongoing support for the library. The Applegate library is one of the oldest in the area, and is now part of the Placer County Library System. The friends of the library raise funds for book purchases, but they also arrange and promote events for the community. I was the lucky author selected in September (along with Mary Volmer) and we had a wonderful time presenting to a roomful of avid readers.

You can follow them on Facebook!

There are several other friends organizations in town, including Friends of the Auburn Library, and the Colfax Friends of the Library.
