Hello Library Friends!

The Friends of the Idyllwild Library understand the critical importance of well-funding libraries and helps ensure that our library receives support needed to provide a wide variety of services to all ages, including access to print and digital media, along with assistance in research, readers’ advisory, and children’s services.

Your financial support ensures that our library will be able to continue providing relevant and important services for the entire community. If you would like to support your library, donate on a monthly basis by signing up for recurring donations.

Idyllwild READS … a lot!  Help us choose Idyllwild’s favorite books … Nominate your favorite books!!

As part of the Idyllwild Library Centennial Celebration, the Friends of the Library and The Idyllwild Community Fund are sponsoring Idyllwild Reads.

Starting January 6, 2020 Idyllwild readers will have the opportunity to complete our Idyllwild Reads Ballot.  There are three voting categories: Favorite book, Favorite Teen\Young Adult book, and Favorite Children’s book.  You can submit more than one ballot if you cannot decide on one favorite book. 

Ballots will be available at the library, in the TownCrier, and on social media accounts for the library and The Friends of the Library.  The submission deadline is February 4, 2020.  All signed ballots will be entered in a drawing in the category for which the ballot is submitted.

Once the ballots are counted, we will publish a list of the top reads in each category.  During February the library staff will accumulate multiple copies of the most popular book in each category, (depending on availability.)  We will then encourage all Idyllwild readers to read the favorite book in the category (or categories) of their choice.  Then in March, we will hold a community discussion of the favorite book and the favorite teen\young adult book. There will be a children’s story time featuring the favorite children’s book.

So…start thinking back on all the books you have read so you can decide on your favorite.  We are excited to see what IDYLLWILD READS!
