Support to Expand the Library's Collections Materials, Including Digital Collections:
In 2021, the West Sacramento Friends of the Library provided over $9,000 to the Arthur F. Turner Community Library to purchase new materials for its collection, including popular titles, and more digital reading materials, including audiobooks and eBooks. We hope to continue that level of support in 2022.
Support to Expand Access and Diversity of Library Reading Collection:
The Arthur F. Turner Community Library serves a population diverse in age, ethnicity, and preferred reading language, with substantial collections in English, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese. The West Sacramento Friends of the Library is seeking funds to enhance the collection of these materials, including new print books, digital books, magazines and audiobooks, and additional titles for the Read Around Yolo book club in a bag.
Support for Library Enrichment Programming and Activities:
The Arthur F. Turner Community Library offers many enrichment programs throughout the year, include the Summer Reading Program, story times, the Homework Center, English Conversation Groups, Author Readings, and Book Clubs.
In 2021 the West Sacramento Friends of the Library provided thousands of dollars to support these programs as they moved online in 2021. We hope to continue that level of support in 2022.
