Anniversary Celebration!

Our libraries will be in attendance again, this year, at the Calaveras County Fair, May 18 - 21. Drop by our table and say 'Hello'!

Calaveras County

Sal Manna is our local author featured for May:



Have you switched your music files to online streaming? Do you have music CDs that you no longer play? Would you donate these items to the library for general patron use?


Calaveras libraries have small collections of music CDs for patrons to borrow. The staff and volunteers are now starting to reorganize the CDs by genre to make browsing more convenient. We would also like to update and expand our selections.

Friends of the Library can help by donating your gently used CDs. All genres are needed, but we would especially like Country music, 60’s and 70’s Rock, and albums produced since 2005. Just drop them off at your nearest library.

Your contributions are tremendously appreciated! Thank you!

Adults: Call 209-795-1009 to reserve your FREE seat for the Mystery Writers Panel & Book Signing, 2-4pm, Friday May 26th at Ebbetts Pass Fire Station.
