Become an Art Calendar Sponsor

We are the Friends of the Redwood Libraries, volunteers whose goal is to stimulate interest in the needs, services and facilities of the Humboldt County Library System. We raise funds to enable procurement of books and related materials. The Friends also meet other library needs not provided for in the regular budget. The 2014 Children's Art Calendar is a win-win for the Redwood Libraries and community, providing an outlet for young artists and raising funds for the libraries.

The Friends of the Redwood Libraries are now working toward publishing the 2014 Children's Art Calendar, featuring the artwork of local children between the ages of 5 and 12. The theme for this year is “My Favorite Character.” All children’s work will be welcome. You can see the 2011-2013 calendars here on our website.

This is our fourth year of producing this Art Calendar. It was originally the brainchild of Roger Cinnamond, and without the hard work of him and his wife Jane, the Calendar might well not have survived its first year. This year we are dedicating the Calendar to the memory of Roger Cinnamond.

None of this can happen without wonderful sponsors like you. A contribution to The Friends of the Redwood Libraries is a Tax-Deductible charitable gift. All contributions are welcome and we will acknowledge our sponsors in the Calendar and on our website.

Sponsors of $25 or more will receive a complimentary calendar, and may, if they choose, have their personal or business card printed in the calendar. In order to be printed in the calendar, donations must be received by September 10, 2013. Please make out sponsorship checks to 'Friends of the Redwood Libraries' or 'F.R.L.'. Please bring your sponsorship checks to the Serendipity Bookstore, Humboldt Library, 2nd Floor, or send to:
