The library has events for all ages! Library events are free and everyone is welcome - you do not need to have a library card to take part in library programs. On this page you see events that repeat weekly, monthly, or seasonally. Check our Special Events Calendar for the many other events that are unique or happen irregularly.
Library programs and services are intended to be accessible to people with disabilities. Please call the Main Library at 707-269-1915 with questions, or to let us know in advance when you plan to attend a program and will need assistance or accommodation.
For now, most (but not all) programs are offered online. Zoom meetings are live online, and require you to sign up ahead of time. Facebook or You Tube offerings are usually available online anytime for several weeks after the start date. Some Library You Tube films are available always.
