Friends of the Amador County Library (FACL) was formed in 1976 to support the Amador County Library in Amador County, California. This includes the main Jackson Library and the branches in Ione, Pine Grove, Pioneer, and Plymouth. FACL raises funds that we use to pay for materials, equipment, and programs for the five branches of the Amador County Library system.
FACL is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which means your donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Our goals have evolved over the years, and today’s FACL finds itself serving primarily a fundraising function, brought about by tight fiscal constraints at both the local and state levels. As the budgets have shrunk, the library’s role has continued to expand and its reliance on the support of the Friends has increased. Today FACL works hand-in-hand with the Amador County Library and its four branches to serve library patrons throughout the county, at the branches and especially online.
