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
Kickoff your summer reading, make friends, and talk books with the Murphys Volunteer Library
June 25th, 2-3:30
Alice Wright marries a handsome American hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. The leader, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who’s never asked a man’s permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky. What happens to them–and to the men they love–becomes an unforgettable drama of loyalty, justice, humanity, and passion.
