SPELL-A-THON Benefits Basin Libraries The Morongo Basin Spell-A-Thon raised over $4000 for the three Basin libraries. The Friends of the Library in Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms are grateful to everyone who helped to make this event a success by pledging money, making donations or spelling! We had a great time! The proceeds will be split evenly among the three libraries and will help to support literacy and the summer reading program in each library.

Annual Financial Report
The Friends of the Twentynine Palms Library remains on solid financial footing. Scroll down to the link for the FY20-21 annual report for the details. Although raising money during a pandemic is a challenge, your generosity enabled us to raise over $1,800 and, by adding from our reserves, we gave $3,750 to the branch to purchase new books. As restrictions ease, we hope to resume our fundraising activities and increase our donations to the library for books, equipment, and other supplies. Individual donations are welcome and make a difference.
If you have a library card you can call the library at 760-367-9519 and reserve a book from any branch of the San Bernardino Library System.
