If this is your first visit, welcome. If not, we’re glad you’re back to see what’s new at our library. The County Library System consists of three libraries. The Main Library in Weaverville is located along the scenic “Trinity Highway” 299.
The Trinity County Library is a member of the North State Cooperative Library System, the 12 northernmost counties in California. The Council of Librarians, Directors of the member public libraries, provide the leadership for NSCLS. The North State Cooperative is a member of NorthNet, a group of cooperatives comprised of the North State, NorthBay, and Mountain Valley Cooperatives. NorthNet is administered by the Executive Director of Peninsula Library System headquartered in San Mateo. Membership in the cooperative provides guidance and direction in library services and funding for various resources that cannot be funded by libraries individually. Other valuable services also include purchases of databases and assistance with grants.
Where can you find hundreds of gently used books at affordable prices and delectable treats all under the same roof? The Trinity County Friends of the Library will be hosting their annual Book and Bake Sale this coming Friday and Saturday, October 25th and 26th. The preview sale for Members will take place on Friday evening between 6:00 – 8:00 pm. with refreshments served in the lobby. Not a Friends member? No problem as memberships can be purchased at the door.
The sale continues on Saturday from 10:00 am. – 3:00 pm. with many titles to choose from in the following areas: fiction, mystery, self-help, how-to & crafts, health, nature & gardening, biography, cookbooks, humor, literature, children’s & young adult books and audios so hurry in for the best selection!
Although our “Reading Is So Delicious” summer program concluded with a lip-smacking build-your-own ice cream sundae finale, children are encouraged to continue reading through the summer by browsing the Library’s many new books and DVDs. This year’s program was made possible through grant funding from the Trinity Trust and Target as well as many dedicated hours of planning by volunteer Beth Bauer and staff member Julie Feely.

The Weaverville Library’s Summer Reading Program kicks off on Wednesday, June 12 at 11:00 am. This year’s program promises to be extra yummy as we find crafty ways with food. It’s not too late to register so join the fun and check out our new books and DVDs!
Don’t forget to participate in our “Stuffed Animal Sleepover and Midnight Feast”. Kids will leave their favorite stuffed animal, doll or toy at the second program and pick them up with a complimentary photo showing what their pal did while the library was closed. You’ll be amazed at the magical things that happen when the library is closed!
Jane Goodie and Friends will be back at the Weaverville Library for a final program on Wednesday, May 29 at 4:00 pm. Join Jane for a lively discussion on how to make healthy food choices. We are what we eat as they say, and Jane is an expert in this area. We hope you will join us for this free special program.
And speaking of food, this is an opportune time to mention the Weaverville Library’s upcoming Summer Reading Program aptly entitled “Reading Is Soooooooo Delicious” beginning in June. Watch for our announcements on this page and in the local newspaper or call the Library at 530-623-1373.
What’s blue, fuzzy and beloved by all children? Why it’s the Cookie Monster of course!
Reading is warm and fuzzy
Our Tuesday, April 2nd program can be called an unequivocal success as 85 children, parents and caregivers crammed the tiny Hayfork Library to listen to a storytime and participate in the “Alphabet Tree” craft. KIXE’s Program Coordinator Melanie Corry was on hand to read and present 50 new children’s titles to our library.
What a crowd!
And what can be said about Cookie Monster except that he was much in demand as children queued up to have their photo taken with him. Many thanks to Melanie and KIXE for making this program happen and to our very own local talent (and former library staff member) CJ Sisco for coordinating the program locally. Be sure to check out KIXE’s Facebook page for more photos!
