Friday Night Fiesta Dinners Return to the Community Center!

News from Pollock Pines Friends of the Library (PP FOL)


First 5 El Dorado, El Dorado County Library, Friends of the Library, El Dorado Community Foundation, and United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra have partnered with Marcella Foundation to launch Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library for 8,000 children ages five and under living in El Dorado County.


Each child in the home will receive an age-appropriate book every month in Spanish or English for FREE! Sign up online today or use the mail-in registration form here.

 

The Pollock Pines Library will soon be temporarily closed for much needed renovations. The estimated time frame for closure is April 1st through April 30th. The book drop will be closed as of March 30th. Book return due dates have been extended and you may also return borrowed books at any county library.

Our FOL combined Board/Public meetings are usually held at the library, so the Community Center has graciously offered space for our April 9th meeting - 11am @ 2675 Sanders Drive. Hope to see you there!
