The Mokelumne Hill Library

Moke Hill’s Living Room

The Mokelumne Hill Branch Library opened in 1999. Long time Mokelumne Hill resident Teresa Moore, bequeathed 2000 shares of stock to the community for a library. The citizens and community organizations of Moke Hill responded with the community energy and expertise to form the Mokelumne Hill Friends of the Library. A series of partnerships and agreements with local government, community organizations and private individuals resulted in the purchasing, renovation and repurposing of a building that once served as an automotive garage and then a restaurant. After about a year of hard work and fun, the Mokelumne Hill Library and History Center was opened.

This branch library houses a collection of over 2500 books and periodicals. You can perform work on a bank of free computers, connect to the internet with your own computer (WiFi), mine your way through the History Society’s archives, talk with local residents or just relax in the comfortable chairs. On any given day you will find people of all ages accessing the services of the library and History Society.

This library is a place of learning, relaxation and interactive program experiences; such as children’s reading hour and tutoring. Our library is truly Moke Hill’s Living Room. Please come and share with us. The library is located on Main Street and open four days a week: Tues, Wed, Thursday and Friday 10-4.  On Thursday, the library will open as our community center, a place to share ideas and interests.  Library materials cannot be checked out, but the computers, internet access; printing, copying and faxing and used book sales will be available.
