Welcome to the online home of the
Friends of the Packard Library of Yuba County
in Marysville, California

Here both members and visitors will find information about our organization, our semi-annual book sales and other events, membership and other opportunities to support the library's many worthwhile programs and services.

There's also some background on the library itself, which serves the more than 70,000 residents of historic Yuba County. The main branch, at 303 Second Street in Marysville, includes The California Room, a unique and extensive collection of books and documents about our state's history. John Q. Packard donated the building for the original Packard Library, and the current Yuba County Library building continues to bear his name.
