Thursday, October 26, at 10:30 am, Trinity County Library in Weaverville will hold Halloween Story Time for toddlers and preschoolers. Please dress in costume if you would like.
Sarah moved to Trinity County in July 2017 and was fortunate to join the Weaverville branch team as a library assistant. She is very grateful to have the privilege of serving such a warm, welcoming community, alongside the wonderful (and patient) library staff and volunteers. Previously, Sarah taught special education at an elementary school in Denver. She’s excited to continue sharing her passion for learning with the youngest library patrons during Story Time on Thursday mornings.
Sarah grew up spending hours at her local library, poring over books with her sister. Libraries were critical in her literacy development as a daughter of immigrants. She is honored to work for such an important public institution. Her favorite book is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, full of timeless lessons for readers of all ages.
The ZIP Books program has been renewed for another year and will be available through August 31, 2018. The Zip Books program allows patrons to order an item not owned by their local library and have it shipped to them directly from Amazon—at no cost to the patron. Once you have read the book, return it to the library and order another one.
Beginning September 25, Trinity County Library in Weaverville will have a display of the most frequently challenged books from last year. The display is part of Banned Books Week, September 24 through September 30, an annual event celebrating the freedom to read

Are you a home bound resident who receives meals from Golden Age Center? Would you like to sign up for free delivery of library books? We are starting a new outreach program to bring the books to your door. Ask the person who delivers your meals for a Homebound brochure. Fill it out, and tell us what you like to read and who your favorite authors are. Give the brochure to the person who delivers your meals or to Kit Porritt at the Golden Age Center (623-2324), or have someone drop it off at the library. And soon the library will deliver books to you at the same time that you receive your meals!
Here are three new books by local authors. “Ivan, the Forest Service Pack Mule” is a children’s book written by Mike McFadin of Weaverville and illustrated by Gay Berrien of Big Bar. Mike is the Shasta-Trinity National Forest Wilderness and Trails manager and Gay is a retired Forest Service employee. This book is based on a real-life mule with an attitude that Mike works with.
“Lost Coast Rocket” and “Hatching the Phoenix Egg” are two sci-fi books written by Joel Horn from Trinity Center. The story features a boy and his friend who create a secret rocketry club in order to build and test rockets. “Impossible beyond this Point” is a true story of his family’s struggle to create a self-sufficient life in the wilderness after moving there from the city.
