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.
Feed your mind: read a tasty book
“Feed your mind: Read a tasty book” is the theme of this year’s summer reading program. Following the tradition established in past years, the library’s program continues this year with Wednesday sessions on June 15, 22 and 29. Guest storytellers will read to the children followed by a nutrition activity and snack. The final program on the 29th will feature special guest and treats.
“Never Stop Asking for Poems”

Wednesday, November 18 was a day of celebration at the Trinity Center Library. Trinity Center Elementary and Coffee Creek school children visited their public library to see and handle the new arrivals. Eighty one brand new books ranging from the very easy-to-read to more advanced titles are now available to children in the Trinity Center area. There is a remarkable variety of books to choose from: fun stories and tales to factual books on topics such as explorers, nature, wildlife, science and math. We reached out to the Libri Foundation for this grant valued at $1,400. Included in this collection are $350 worth of math and science books thanks to the generosity of donors Bill Strawbridge and Meg Wallhagen. The children’s area in our little library has literally been transformed overnight. The Trinity County Library is honored to have been chosen to receive this wonderful grant.
