Extra Staff Hours

Basic library staffing is paid for by the Monterey County Free Library system, but the Friends supplement the county budget by covering the cost of a Library Assistant I in the Carmel Valley branch for four hours per week. This greatly increases the library’s ability to create and maintain outreach education, youth programming, and class visits to local schools. Having additional hours also gives the staff increased capacity and flexibility to participate with customers in the library and in the community.
