UPPER LAKE, Calif. – The Upper Lake branch of the Lake County Library is open and ready for the new school year with new Dr. Seuss books.

When Gina, the Upper Lake librarian, was asked what the Friends of the Lake County Library could do for her branch, she asked for new early readers and picture books by Dr. Seuss as those at Upper Lake were showing a lot of wear.

The Friends were delighted to donate $200 for that purpose.

The books are perennial favorites with beginning readers and the Friends are pleased that Upper Lake students will find fresh new ones when they visit their public library.

The Friends of the Library is a 501(c)3 organization that provides funding for programs that are beyond the Library’s budget. The money is earned by the sale of quality used books donated by the community, memberships and tax-deductible donations.

The Friends meet the fourth Wednesday of the month at 10 a.m. at the Lakeport Library. While all are warmly welcomed, attendance at meetings is not a requirement of membership. Membership applications are available at each branch.
