Plumas County Library was one of six libraries in California to receive the Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries $3,000 grant. The Library partnered with Plumas County Correction Facility to create the program Families Read Together, an initiative to help connect inmates with their children by reading to them over recorded video. Each family will receive the five books and the video of the guardian reading them to their child, fostering both literacy and familial connection. Inmates will also be able to add a handwritten card with their books. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Dixie Fire the program got off to a late start, and the first videos were recorded and sent to the families in October 2021.
