In the fall of 1988 the idea for the Shingletown Library was born.  In June of 1994 the doors to the present library opened and the rest is a vivid history of volunteerism at its very best.  The Library was conceived by volunteers, built with donations and volunteer labor, and today is staffed entirely with very dedicated volunteers.  The Library has no connections to any city, county or governmental agencies, nor does it derive any of its funding from these agencies.  The Library is a non-profit corporation dedicated to promoting reading in our community.

Shingletown Library Presents Grapevines and Beer Steins

The Library’s biggest fundraiser this year, Grapevines and Beer Steins, will be held July 15th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. This replaces Hot Lava Night as our major fundraiser. You will be able to enjoy tasting wine and beer from local wineries and breweries (and some from a distance). You will also be able to enjoy some great hors d’oeuvres while tasting these spectacular wines and beers. The Chris Lauer Band will entertain you with oldies and blues music. There will be games and we will offer our ever-popular silent auction. It will be a night of fun that you don’t want to miss! Tickets to this year’s event are $25.00 and will go on sale shortly.
