Library services return to Indian Valley

By Meg Upton

     Greenville is getting a “Pop-Up Branch” this Tuesday, Feb. 22, bringing a bit of normalcy and much needed services back in the valley.

     The Plumas County Library announced the opening of its temporary site to be located at the Greenville Elementary School in Room 2. Signs will be posted near the school for easy navigation to the room. Patrons can also access the site for a map with detailed instructions.  

     The temporary branch will be open Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with a lunch break and reopening from 2 to 6 p.m. It will also be open Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.


     Any books and materials borrowed may be returned to the Greenville site during open hours only or anytime at the other branches in the county.

     Public computers (laptops only) and wifi will be available along with books, audiobooks, and DVDs for check out.

     The library services include assisting to get books from other branches delivered to Greenville for check out. The Zip Book Program has resumed at all branches including the Greenville Pop-Up site. If there is a current book/audiobook that is not in the library’s collection, patrons can fill out a Zip From and the item will be sent directly to them. After patrons are done reading it, return it, the book will then be considered for the collection.

     The book giveaways that children have enjoyed in the past will be returning in March with the Plumas County Library’s “Read Across Plumas County” book giveaway. Complete an activity, return it, and receive a free book. One book per person per open day. Activity sheets will be available at each branch or on  the site. Watch for programming for children and adults coming later this year.


     Any additional questions, can be answered by contacting the Quincy branch at (530) 283-6310.
