2017 Annual Meeting

Annual MeetingWe had another successful Annual Meeting on May 20. Officers were elected and Library Director, Vanessa Christman, updated us on the “State of the Library”.
Stephanie Hillman presented the Community Service Award to Scott Brown and Eureka Books. When asked how they would like the $2,000 gift to the library spent, Scott said they would like it to be used to purchase graphic novels.
Pamela Foster gave a fascinating presentation about her life growing up in Humboldt County. And, yes, she made Big Foot come alive for us!

Call For Calendar Art

It’s that time again! We are inviting all children, from age 5 to 12, to enter a drawing to be considered for the 2018 calendar! If a child in your life has a favorite book or character in a book, we’d love to see it!

You can download a Calendar Art Application Form here. Applications are also available in the Serendipity Book Store and the children’s section of the Eureka Main Library. You may also send an e-mail to rmtuck@suddenlink.net and receive an application by email.

If you would like to be a sponsor to help defray the cost of the printing of the calendar you can send any amount, marked “Calendar” to Friends of the Redwood Libraries, P.O. Box 188, Eureka, CA 95502. Your donation is tax deductible.

Serendipity reaches $500,000 in sales!

Frances with booksFRL's Serendipity Book Store has achieved $500,000 in sales! The Friends of the Redwood Libraries wish to thank our wonderful customers, members, volunteers, our generous community and the library for supporting the bookstore. Serendipity Book Store is located on the second floor of the Eureka branch library at 1313 Third St., Eureka, and is open during library hours, closing 30 minutes before the library closes.

Serendipity was founded in October, 1999, by the Friends under the guidance of treasured volunteer Frances Rapin and is staffed with a dedicated team of volunteers. New titles are added frequently, so stock is never predictable and always interesting. Check our Serendipity page for more information on hours and our donation policies.

The Friends' mission is to support the Humboldt County Library system. Money generated by store sales supports book purchases, the biennial Authors Festival, and enrichment programs for children in the community. Please consider a volunteer position with the Friends of the Redwood Libraries!
