Who are the Tehama County Friends of the Library?
We are a membership, non-profit corporation dedicated to helping the libraries of Tehama County. Our Articles of Incorporation restrict us to benefiting the libraries of Tehama County only. We are citizens of Tehama County who believe that libraries are the main cultural centers of our communities. We are a volunteer organization dedicated to strengthening our library’s resources. We are the Libraries good will ambassadors to the community. We meet regularly at 1:00 p.m. on the 3rd Monday of January-May & September-November at the Tehama County Library. Visitors are welcome at these meetings.
What do the Friends do?
We raise money to provide funds for desirable extras the tax dollar does not cover (furniture, display cases, carpeting, microfilm readers, book drop box, computers, etc.) Our fund-raisers represent an investment of our time as volunteers:
- Ongoing sales of used books every day in the Red Bluff and Los Molinos library.
- Periodic giant used book sales
Also, as volunteers, we
- Sponsor and participate in Christmas programs that feature seasonal literature for children and their parents.
- Present an annual reading of cowboy poetry.
- Sponsor and participate in a summer reading program for children in the community.
We encourage donations of fine books, art, and valuable documents to Tehama County’s libraries. We encourage bequests, memorials, and contributions for the benefit of the Tehama County library system
