Murphys Volunteer Library is pleased to host the Mother Lode Storytelling Guild for A Family Concert of Storytelling and Song on Saturday, October 20th, from 2-3:30pm. This is a FREE event (donations appreciated), and will include a children's book giveaway at intermission. For more information, visit the Sierra Nevada Storytelling website.


Many thanks to everyone who donated books, and especially to the volunteers who made our Labor Day weekend book sale a great success. Here are some notable achievements:

  • ‚ÄčOver 30 volunteers came together to help - some from as far away as Valley Springs!
  • Sales during the 2-days exceeded $700, which will go directly toward buying new books and materials for the Murphys Library!
  • The sale raised awareness of our great library with both visitors and locals, some who had never been inside and others who had never been upstairs!
  • Books and CDs that remained after the sale will continue to be sold upstairs!
  • Because of the quality of books donated we will be expanding the sales area upstairs; this will allow us to keep accepting donations for more sales!
  • Many of us made new friends while sorting and selling books!
