The Public Library is dedicated to free and equal access to information, knowledge, independent lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, and the joys of reading for our diverse community.
Public libraries in California seek to engage the talents, skills and commitment of volunteers to serve the communities' information and literacy needs. Libraries offer a variety of skilled volunteer opportunities to make a meaningful contribution to library programs, operations, fundraising events and other community engagement functions. Skilled volunteers have opportunities to lead projects, work with teams of staff and volunteers, learn new skills, and have fun.

Um, well I love this library because of its creative and gentle atmosphere. The staff are incredible, they are always willing to help you out with any issue. The branch manager is so knowledgeable about education, I remember last year I was at a computer and she approached me if I was interested in attending an Sat workshop and to apply for a scholarship, which I ultimately.won.yay! Overall, great library to be in. A variety of programs to participate in and contribute to the community, and a great place to learn valuable skills which will help a person to succeed.
