How Do We Raise Funds?

In additional to funds raised through annual membership dues, we also have several ways to raise funds that go to the support of the Mammoth Lakes Branch Library. These include:

  • Operate a used book store, inside the Library.

Vintage Books Subcommittee

The Vintage Books Subcommittee sells donated used books that are more valuable than our regular bargain-basement book sale prices, due to age, first edition status, signatures of authors, or other collectible characteristics. This committee of volunteers researches, evaluates, and prices these books for either internet sales or MLFOL book sales. Volunteers must be computer literate with access to a computer (library computers are available as is one-on-one training).

Storytime

Mammoth Lakes Library is pleased to announce we are resuming in person storytimes each Wednesday morning at 10.30 in English, with bilingual English/Spanish storytimes taking place once a month at the same time. Storytime includes songs, storie and hands-on activities to help promote early learning skills such as executive function, fine and gross motor skills & imaginative play.

 La hora del cuento bilingüe se llevará a cabo una vez al mes los miércoles a las 10:30 en la Biblioteca de Mammoth Lakes. Storytime incluye canciones, cuentos y actividades prácticas para ayudar a promover las habilidades de aprendizaje temprano, como la función ejecutiva, las habilidades motoras finas y gruesas y el juego imaginativo.
