Library Year-in-Review: Mokelumne Hill!

Kids had a fun day with First 5 Express at San Andreas library, with stories, music, and art activities!

Mokelumne Hill FOTL President Janet Dock reflected on their library branch accomplishments in 2017:

Children's programs focused on promoting literacy, with Story Hour, 240 books given to Mokelumne Hill Elementary students, Science Club twice a month on Tuesdays, Summer Reading and Art Camp. The Dollywood program also sent one book each month to about 28 families in the 95245 zip code with children 0-4 years old.

Adult programs focused on education, historical information, and literacy, with the Gold Rush Writers' Program and the Moke Hill Reads book club.

Programs are funded by grants from First 5 Calaveras and the Arts Council, along with generous donations from the Lions Club, MHCH Trust, Zumba, James Aarons, and Moke Hill Main St. Business Association, and book sales from the front porch. 

The branch participated in the Calaveras County FOTL Trivia Bee, California History Day, and the Holiday Open House (with crafts, refreshments, and book give-aways.) They also completed a Front Porch Cleanup project with support from the Moke Hill Main St. Business Association and community volunteers.

For 2018, the FOTL will work on plans for the branch's 20th anniversary in June, 2019. They will also focus on programs for older adults and teens.​​

Mark your calendars for our annual Trivia Bee,March 24th, 2018: this year's theme will be "Highway 49 - The Gold Rush Trail!" 

From making Valentines at Murphys and West Point, to painting rocks at Copperopolis... Thanks to all who attended these special events.
