About Us

For Bylaws 2009 go to this page.

The Friends of the El Cerrito Library is an organization dedicated to supporting library services in El Cerrito. Through membership dues and book sales revenue, the Friends provides the library with books, magazines and compact discs. Additionally, Friends provides matching grants for special collections and helps support the library’s cultural and educational programs for children and adults.

The Library offers computer classes, multi-lingual reading resources, literacy programs and children’s educational entertainments. In addition, the library’s county-wide reservation system makes it easy to place a hold and receive any book or DVD within a few days.

The Library is a bright, vibrant, bustling place through the day and evenings. It is a friendly and safe place for children of all ages to go for after-school homework, for their parents and grandparents, for our many English learners, our scholars, teachers, neighbors and friends.

Your membership will directly support the Library. Please join Friends of the El Cerrito Library today. For details, please go to the Join Us page. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Thank you for your support!
