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.

The Shingletown Library is seeking volunteers who would like to serve on the Board of Directors. We have 2 open positions that must be filled in order to continue the functions of the library and keep our doors open. If you or anyone you know would like to volunteer, please submit your name, contact information to Marilee Strom at 474-3586 or email
