Concluding its year-long centennial celebration, the Colusa County Library held its final open house on Wednesday, May 18, 2016.

“We’ve had great support from each of the communities,” said Colusa County Librarian, Stacey Costello.

The final open house was celebrated at the Arbuckle Branch Library where dozens of patrons checked out books and used the library resources.

“It’s wonderful to see the community utilizing the library and its resources,” said Costello.

Since the inaugural celebration kicked off in September of last year, Costello has been working towards increasing library services and relevancy in the community.

“We’ve recently added digital resources for children and young adults. We are also working towards expanding and improving our literacy program,” said Costello.

Digital resources include the recently announced membership with EBSCO Host, an academic reference source, and ABC Mouse, a literacy program for young children.

The County Library also expanded its hours in Colusa to include Saturday’s and evenings.

The Arbuckle Branch Library is open Monday 1 PM to 6PM, Tuesday 10 AM to 3 PM, and Wednesday 1 PM to 6 PM and is serviced by Librarian Michelle Dennis.
