February Update

by in Past Monthly Updates February 1, 2019


Can you add to these ideas to show your love of your Chico branch library?

Join your Chico Friends of the Library (CFOL) or renew your current membership.

Support CFOL fund raising efforts by donating books for the weekly book sales, buying books at the sales and from the “sale” bookcases in the lobby of the library, volunteering to help with the book sales, or buying a Chico bag or tote bag with the Chico Friends of the Library logo.

Apply to be a library volunteer. There are a variety of volunteer positions available that help to keep your library the vibrant place that it is.

Express your appreciation to library staff and volunteers. Hearing “thank you” and “we love this library” really brightens the day and makes all the hard work worthwhile.

Consider making a bequest to the CFOL in your will or trust. Of course donations are also welcome at any time.

Attend Butte County Board of Supervisors meetings when library funding is on the agenda.

Encourage friends, neighbors, and acquaintances to obtain a library card and use the library. Bring young children to the story times and attend other library events.


Be sure to attend the members-only book sale on Friday, February 1 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm in the library’s meeting room. Take advantage of the less crowded atmosphere of the members-only sale and of the 50% discount on all items this weekend. The regular Saturday sale for the general public takes place every Saturday from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. The sale on Saturday, February 2 will also feature this deep discount.


The Chico branch library will be closed in honor of President’s Day on Saturday, February 16. Regular hours resume on Sunday, February 17.


With licensing funding provided by your CFOL, the Chico branch library presents family-friendly movies every Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. in the library’s meeting room. What a great opportunity to catch up on movies you may have missed or to revisit old favorites. See you at the movies!


With funding from Butte County, grants and your CFOL, the Chico branch library’s Maker Lab is equipped and operative.  Users can learn new skills or exercise existing talents with support from volunteers and students.  Creativity and imagination are welcome!  Virtual Reality experiences also take place in the Lab on Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m.


Are you and your friends receiving the Butte County Library newsletter?  Keep up with special events, new books and DVDs, activities and learning experiences offered, and other news delivered to your email inbox.  Ask any library staff member to update your library account so you can receive the monthly newsletter.
