Friends of the Library Annual Garage Sale Fundraiser is Revving Up

You might or might not know that our Mi Wuk Library is no longer a part of the county library system.  But, through arrangements with the county the library remains open for 6 hours per week, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 1-4 p.m., staffed 100% by volunteers.  We pay $1 per year rent to the county!  And the county takes responsibility for the building maintenance and utilities.  It’s really been a win-win situation.  All that said…….read on.

The Friends of the Tuolumne County Library sponsors an annual garage sale fund raiser at the Twain Harte Golf Club every January.  It will take place on January 13th and 14th, with a High Country Friends Gala on January 12th this year.

You can drop off your books and other items (no clothing, old electronics, exercise equipment or large furniture please) on Thursday, January 12th between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the Golf Course Clubhouse.

The Gala is Thursday evening from 4-6 p.m. and is $15 at the door.  Join in for refreshments, wine, music and a Silent Auction.

All proceeds from this major annual fundraiser will benefit the Mi Wuk Lending Library and the Twain Harte Branch Library for such things as books, children’s programs and library equipment.

If you’d like to volunteer to help for a few hours during the event, contact Joannie Dahlgren at

If you’re interested in helping out with the pre-organization, give Marilyn Wachner a call at 586-9471 or email     I know they can use all the help they get.

    I loved our county library. Joan Henderson and Alice Smith were excellent librarians,
    However, the generosity of Mi Wuk Village residents has created an even better library. Patrons buy hard cover books, read them lickety split and then donate them so the rest of us can enjoy the best sellers in a timely manner. The library also has a modest budget to special order requests by patron. It is tireless volunteers and donations that make this a stellar example of community. Come join the book club, card making classes with Stampin Up, conversation with our county representatives and candidates, and the knitting group.
    Our community library also has a fabulous children’s section and videos for free.
