The following appeared in a recent Letter to the Editor of the Napa Register by our Corresponding Secretary, Barb Stone.
The Friends of the Napa Library continues to be very busy in the past few months to support the Napa County Library during these challenging times.
First off, thank you to all who supported us though Napa CanDo’s Give!Guide! The annual drive, held virtually this year in December, enabled the Friends to raise over $13,000 to support our library’s programs.
We also had a very successful December Book Sale. The sale was held over fewer days than in the past as the community continues its pandemic recovery, but managed to raise over $11,000! Locals made the sale a success despite having to brave the winter rains.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 19 – Sunday, March 27 for our first return to our full nine day book sale since 2019. Thw sale will include all of our customers favorites: members-only on the first day, special sale days, half price and bag days.
Need some reading material or other enterainment between sales? Check out our on-going Library Lobby Sale. Merchandise including books, CD’s and DVD’s is replaced daily so there’s always something new to discover.
The Friends continues to accept books, CD and DVD donations. Since our volunteer staff is limited due to COVID restrictions, please call ahead if you have a large donation to make sure we have the staff to assist you. We can be reached at (707)253-4614.
Visit us here at www.folnapa.org or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find updated information about our sales and other actvities.
We thank you for your support!

A BIG THANK YOU to EVERYONE who donated to the FRIENDS of the NAPA LIBRARY from the 2021 CanDo Give!Guide!
Thank you for donating to the Friends of the Napa Library through the 2021 Give!Guide!
You have worked hard for the money that you donated to us. We appreciate it and are thankful. Words are fleeting, and we want you to know that a simple “thank you” doesn’t do justice to how deeply we appreciate your support. We are so glad to have you counted in our community of givers.
