The South Lake Tahoe Branch Friends of the Library are volunteers who support the library. They raise money for children’s programs, books and other library needs at our book sales. Anyone can be a member of the Friends of the Library. Go to and click on Friends of the Library Volunteers and Donations to find out how.

The Friends of the Library sell gently used books in the lobby year round. They have a great selection of books from best sellers to children’s books. There are also several big book sales held throughout the year, during which they sell books on tape, videos and books at bargain prices.

The Friends of the Library also sponsor a wide variety of great programs for children and adults, including lectures, book talks, workshops, live music, and a series of family programs during the summer.
