Please support the work of the Friends of the Amador County Library by donating your time, items the library can use, books and other materials for our Book Sales, and financial contributions. All gifts – large, small, or in between – help us further our mission to support and enhance the Amador County Library’s value to our community. When you donate to FACL you can be sure that we are working every day to bring enriched resources to our library and our community. Use the form below to make an online donation.

There are many options for you to make a difference.
