The Friends of the Esparto Regional Library would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to our members and volunteers who support the Esparto Regional Library. Your membership and active participation enhances the library programs and services.

Volunteers beautify the library grounds by maintaining the gardens, decorate the display cases, promote the Children’s Christmas Shopping Day, stock the Book Nook, and run the annual book sale at the Almond Festival. FERL also supports the summer reading programs for children, provides cloth book bags with a library starter kit for new library cardholders, and funds the purchase of new books.

FERL is dedicated to promoting life-long learning via the Esparto Regional Library. Here are some of the ways you can be involved:
