The Zip Books program has been continued for another year! How it works:

  1. Visit the Calaveras county library website. (Or ask at your local library!)
  2. Search the catalog for a book you'd like, and verify that it is not already in our system.​ (Or ask your librarian!)
  3. Fill out the online form to request the title (select 'Purchase Request).
  4. The book will be sent directly to you from Amazon. (It is not a gift!)
  5. Enjoy the book, and return it to your library within three weeks.
  6. Once you return the book, you may request another...

Friends of Libraries have their very own week of national celebration! Murphys Volunteer Library would like to thank all our friends - staff, volunteers, and patrons alike - for your continued support. Your generous donations help keep our library a vibrant and active part of the local community. 

It's that time of year again in Murphys... Day of the Dead will be celebrated on November 5th, and your library will be OPEN. Stop by during the festival - we will have a free coloring page for you to unleash your creativity!

The Murphys Volunteer Library serves our community with literature,

audio books, DVDs, free wifi, meeting space, and dynamic programming.

  Open Tuesday through Saturday 11:00-4:00
