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.
