Two ways to support your library

It has been three years since Measure L - the $15 a year property tax - failed in the election and the library lost an important part of its funding. We would like to ask you to help your library by "paying the tax anyway". Your donation of $15 or more would really help. An easy way to make a donation is by going to our web site, and clicking on "Make a Donation" to your library.

Another way to help the library and have some fun is to attend our Third Annual Wine for Words Event...
The El Dorado County Main Library in Placerville will be hosting our Wine for Words Event on Sunday, September 28th from 4pm to 8pm. Best selling author John Lescroart will be speaking about his new book “Betrayal”. The evening will begin at 4pm with wine tasting from five local wineries: Ursa Vineyards, DK Cellars, Madrona Vineyards, Wofford Acres Vineyards and Fenton Herriott Vineyards. Each guest will receive a special event wine glass. At 5pm a catered dinner by Diane Wilkinson will be served.

For more information please call the library at 530-621-5540. You may also visit the library website at This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

I love libraries and think they add immensely to the quality of life in a community. However, I won't support this particular fund raiser because the library did not work cooperatively with our community's independent bookstore to provide the author's books which will be sold at the event. I believe the library is getting the books from either Borders or Barnes & Noble in Sacramento.

I hope this oversight will not occur in the future.
