In 1985, cuts in the county budget were to result in four Calaveras library branches being closed, including Murphys. Librarian Jean Kirkpatrick was steadfast in her belief that Murphys MUST have a library. Her passion, combined with the efforts of community leaders resulted in Murphys Volunteer Library, Inc: the first all-volunteer library in California.
In 1998, Calaveras County hired a branch assistant for Murphys, and has since supported the library within its system. Murphys Volunteer Library is beautifully situated overlooking the Community Park, providing resources for many patrons.
