Open Tuesday through Saturday 11:00-4:00  

Books are always a great gift idea. If you're stumped for what to give someone this holiday season, remember that Murphys Library has shelves FULL of books for sale - as little as fifty cents each!


Or, if your shopping is done and you're still in the giving mood... A donation to Murphys Library is a wonderful way to spread holiday (and literary) cheer!

Starting January, 2017, Murphys Volunteer Library will feature a 'Spotlight' page on this website for local authors. Each month we will highlight a different author with images and links to their work. We hope our readers will enjoy learning about the wonderful writers in our community.


If you are a published author in the Tri-counties (Amador/Calaveras/Tuolumne), or know of someone who would like to participate, please contact us! Thank you.
