I have just received a directive from County administration that we should close all our branches. I know the library can be a source of information and comfort in such cases, but with the volatility of the virus and exponential increase of cases in many areas, this is the action that we have decided is best for the health of our county. We do not yet know how long our closures will be. I will keep you updated as I receive information.
Thank you for your support of our library system in Calaveras County. Please feel free to write or call with any questions or concerns.
The Calaveras County Library buildings are closed due to the Covid-19 emergency quarantine, but they offer many online services, plus you can check out books at the main library in San Andreas and your local branch libraries by putting a hold on the book of your choice. You will be called when your item is ready for SAFE pick-up.
You can pick up your book at Murphys Library on Wednesday & Saturday 10am to 12pm
The next book club meeting is August 6th.

Lydia Quixano Pérez lives in the Mexican city of Acapulco. She runs a bookstore and her eight-year-old son, Luca, is the love of her life. Her wonderful husband is a journalist. And while there are cracks beginning to show in Acapulco because of the drug cartels, her life is, by and large, fairly comfortable.
Lydia stocks some of her all-time favorite books in her store, although they never sell. One day a man enters the shop to browse and buys two of her favorites. He is a charming great conversationalist. And, unbeknownst to Lydia, he is the jefe of the newest drug cartel in Acapulco. When Lydia’s husband’s tell-all profile of Javier is published, none of their lives will ever be the same.
Forced to flee, Lydia and Luca soon find themselves miles and worlds away from their comfortable middle-class existence. Instantly transformed into migrants. As they join the countless people trying to reach El Norte, Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to? American Dirt will leave readers utterly changed. It is a literary achievement filled with poignancy, drama, and humanity on every page. It is one of the most important books for our time.
