Who We Are
Friends of the Calaveras County Library (FOTCCL) exists to promote the services offered by our community libraries — actively working to provide support for each of the eight branches in the county system.
Friends give financial aid in the form of funds raised by book sales, special events, recycling, donations from our members, and more...
Friends volunteer their time to serve as board members, organize events, and help behind the scenes at library branches.

More Ways to Easily Support Your libraries
Give Materials. Donate gently used books and DVDs at your local branch; and don’t forget to shop our shelves: proceeds from the sale of used materials helps Friends of the Library to buy new titles for your libraries.
Donate a magazine or newspaper subscription to your local branch. If you have Coke Rewards, those may also be donated towards magazine subscription purchases.
Donate items (such as wine, handcrafts, art, specialty foods, etc.) for gift baskets to be raffled at special events. Proceeds from raffle ticket sales benefit the library book fund and adult tutoring program.
Fundraisers attend FOTCCL and branch library fundraisers.
