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.
