New at the Library

We are super excited to announce the launch of an after-school program for just for you!  Check out the Evolution of Storytelling Project below!  

Also, the Mammoth Lakes Library has separated our Young Adult titles from our Youth collection!  Let's face it -- as older teens, you're simply on a different level than tweens, and it's about time you get your own section at the library.  Pass by and check out the many new title that have been added to the YA collection (a huge THANK YOU to the Mammoth Lakes Friends of the Library for their generous contribution!)

Evolution of Storytelling Project

Mono County Libraries is proud to launch the Evolution of Storytelling Project.  This project is funded through the Shared Vision Grant, sponsored by the CA State Library, and it will run from September 2020 - August 2022.  In a nutshell -- join peers and Teaching Artists througout Mono County to learn about the history and art of storytelling.  Not only will you walk away with a greater understanding and appreciation for storytelling, but you'll also learn specific techniques for how to craft and shape your own stories.  #TellYourStory #OwnVoices

Program Opportunities

Did you know that you have your very own Youth Librarian at the Mono County Libraries?  You might know her as "that lady from the library," but she also goes by Carissa, and she's here to help you make the most out of your public library!  Yes, we have books and DVDs for you to check out and computers to use, but that is just the tip of the iceberg.  The public library is public space, which means it's also your space!  So if you have an interest or a hobby that you'd like to expand and share with others, reach out and start a conversation.  Carissa is always happy to chat with you about how we might bring your idea to life.
