The Chico Friends of the Butte County Library is incorporated in the State of California as a nonprofit organization as of June 30, 2002. Our federal ID number is 94-3167529 and our 501 (c)(3) status was confirmed as of August 15, 1993. No goods or services are provided in exchange for your donation.
We are an organization of volunteers dedicated to supporting the Chico branch of the Butte County Library.
We are committed to making our library a place where families and community members can learn and grow.
Our job is to raise money, which we then spend on the library. Some of our projects are long-term (think library expansion or remodel).
We spend money on library books and movies every month. We sponsor library programs like the weekly movies, or children's craft programs.
We sponsored the library's Maker Lab, which is that big blue industrial space in the middle of the library. It has sewing, 3D printing, coding, robots, virtual reality programs, and more!
Think about becoming a board member - help us spend this money and keep the community aware of all the good done by our library.
You are welcome to attend the board meetings generally held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 P.M. in the library's meeting room.
