Who are Friends of the Yolo Branch Library

The Friends of the Yolo Branch Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed to support the Yolo Branch Library in its service to the communities of Dunnigan, Yolo, Zamora and the surrounding rural areas. We work in concert with the library staff to understand the communities' needs, develop services to meet those needs, and build community engagement

A history of agriculture in our area was presented by 3 local farmers - Fritz Durst, Shannen Schaad Barrett, and Pete Rominger.

The Friends of the Yolo Branch Library and Yolo County Library co-sponsored the sixth annual classic car and truck show in Yolo on Saturday, August 26, 2023.  Over 800 people walked the streets of Yolo admiring over 110 classic cars & trucks, youth lowrider bikes, antique fire engines, tractors and gas engines.  Children enjoyed free activities inside the new Yolo Branch Library, picked up free books, and walked away with their favorite twisted balloon creation.   Families gathered to enjoy yummy food from Dave's Dawgs, Riley's BBQ, Potbelly Catering,  and Taco Jalisco plus snow cones and baked goods.  Event T-shirts and YOLO souvenirs were available to buy along with a wide array of goods from nearly twenty vendors.
