The recent devastating fires in Santa Rosa, happily spared the libraries in the Santa Rosa system.  However, the library inventories experienced serious smoke damage requiring many of the items to be replaced.  Our colleagues need our help.  We are asking any of our members who wish to make a monetary contribution to:

send your check to Friends of the Santa Rosa Library, 211 E. Street, Santa Rosa, CA 95404  OR
put funds in a donation jar at our upcoming book sale and we will forward the funds for you.

We realize you are a very generous group and we thank you in advance for your support.


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
