Have you ever had trouble locating Murphys Library? It's on a hill, just above the community park, and across the street from Murphys Creek Theater.

From Highway 4, drive down Main Street to the intersection with Murphys Historic Hotel.  Turn left, and follow the road (Algiers Street) to our driveway on the left, just past the bridge over the creek. The driveway is one-way - be sure to stay on the right where it loops around a small house to the parking area.

​Still need help? Give us a call at 209-728-3036.

  Open Tuesday through Saturday 11:00-4:00
