Humboldt County's public library system is a vital part of the Humboldt community. The main branch in Eureka, the smaller branches in towns and communities throughout Humboldt, and the Bookmobile that travels to even smaller and remote areas of the county provide more than just books, movies, and other materials to be borrowed. The library is a place to learn more about the community we call home, gather with friends to view artwork, or to take part in one of the many events sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
Coming in February are book sales, Family Literacy Nights, and more. Make sure to click on the link for each branch library to learn more about the events happening at your community's library.
