          Wine in Garden Fundraiser

  • President - Paula Pennington
  • Secretary - Barbara Howard 
  • Treasurer - Marge Holdridge 

9:00 am in the Markleeville Library on the first Saturday of the month. Members of the public are welcome to attend and get involved!

The main function of the Friends of the Library is to augment the programs and events of the County Library system. They help fund Summer Reading programs, monthly Book Clubs and writing workshops. Likewise they provide financial support for library events such as children's Storytimes, Author Visits, the annual Teddy Bear Parade, and summer Music in the Park series. In addition to programming and events, the Friends fund the purchase of tables, shelving units, signage, magazine subscriptions, and many other items that help the Library thrive. Without the support of the Friends, our Libraries would be very hollow indeed!

Beyond the standard Book Sale, the Friends raise money throughout the year by selling Death Ride mugs, hosting the
annual Wine in the Garden Fundraiser, and selling locally authored books and other merchandise. The Friends also raise money through donations & annual memberships drives. If you would like to become a member, please click here.
