If you are a volunteer (either in-house or FOTAGL), you are invited to attend the annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast on Saturday, April 21st from 8:30 to 10AM.  Local historian, Jim Gregory, will discuss his two latest books about local history.  Breakfast foods and beverages will be served.  Hope to see you there!


Love reading books but feel like you have no one to talk to about them? Join the “Arroyo Grande Bookends,” an adult book discussion group moderated by a library staff member and open to the public.  Meetings are once a month and we discuss a wide selection of books.  Copies of discussion books are available from the library.  Obtain a list of our discussion books at the link below or from our reference librarian.     Bookends Calendar
