Welcome to the Placerville Friends of the Library!
Funds raised by the Friends are used to purchase books and other materials (DVDs, eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, newspapers) and to support children’s programming and events.
Unlike the other libraries in El Dorado County, the Placerville Main Library receives no specific direct tax support. It must rely on the County General Fund and struggles to provide the services patrons need—which makes the Friends of the Library that much more critical to its success.
Check it Out! The Placerville Friends of the Library Summer 2018 Newsletter is ready to read. The Placerville Library is celebrating its 40th year on Fair Lane. Be sure to read all about it in the Special Edition of Check it Out, right here!
Our board of directors meets the fourth Monday of every month at 10am; no meetings during the months of July and December. Meetings are held at the library and the public is welcome. Come and learn about what we do and how you can support the library! Please contact the library to confirm meeting times and dates.
