Upcoming Events

The Friends Elect a New President At its June meeting the Board elected Deborah Medina as its incoming president for the FY 22-23 year and M.J. Fiocco as incoming vice president. Herman Platzke, outgoing president, remains on the board as a director. Herman was instrumental in carrying the organization through the past year of on-and-off again Covid restrictions and helped our library, along with those of Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley, make the 2022 Spell-A-Thon a success. Thanks Herman!

Upcoming Events  We are putting together our calendar for the upcoming year and this is what we have planned: a semi-annual book sale on October 15 during Pioneer Days; a Halloween themed mystery murder dinner in November; an online auction of fabulous one-of-a-kind items in February; the 2023 Spell-A-Thon in March; and a semi-annual book sale in May. Most dates still need to be confirmed and we're crossing our fingers that we don't have another wave of Covid. We'll keep you updated here and through our newsletter.  Also - we are looking for volunteers to give us a hand setting up for our big book sales. If you can spare a couple of hours to help us please send an email to You'll have our heartfelt thanks and a first crack at the books for sale.
