Library News & Events

  • Upcoming Library Closures
    All Butte County Library branches will be closed on Sunday, April 21st, 2019, in observance of Easter holiday.
  • We Need Your Feedback!
    Your Butte County Library is interested in hearing from you about how you use your library, what we could be doing better to serve you, and what you'd like to see from us in the future. There are two ways you can get involved:
    - Take our online survey: Your participation enters you into a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card!
    - Attend a library conversation: We are hosting discussions in our Chico, Gridley, Durham, and Oroville branches the week of April 23-26. All are welcome to share your thoughts, but registration is required due to room occupancy limits. Light refreshments will be provided at each event. Register for free at
  • Share Your Camp Fire Story
    We are partnering with StoryCenter to honor and record our community's experiences with the Camp Fire. As Joe Lambert, founder and executive director, of StoryCenter, says: "The stories of those affected by the mega-fires of last several years are now an important part of California memory, and deserve to be collected and maintained as part of sustaining our awareness of how our state is coping with the intersection of climate change, environmental and land use policy, and managing the resource of our wilderness areas."
    StoryCenter staff will be recording stories at Chico Library's Maker Lab on Saturday, April 20th, from 10 am - 4 pm. If you are interested in sharing your story, you may register for your 30 minute interview here. For more information, contact the Chico Branch Library at 530.891.2726.
