El Dorado County Library - Pollock Pines Branch

6210 Pony Express Trail


Doris Cloherty started the first Pollock Pines Library in 1952, using a couple of shelves in her coffee shop. When Mrs. Cloherty closed her coffee shop, she and the county librarian approached Mr. Harvey West about the possibility of constructing a real library building. Mr. West built a small building on donated land in 1958. When this became too small after a couple of years, the building was moved to Shingle Springs and used as its branch library. Mr. West then built the present ski-chalet like structure on the same site which serves as the branch today.

This is a GREAT little library. They have quiet toys in the children's section that my kids beg me to take them back to play with. They don't mind that I bring my 6 kids, and things might get a little busy. :) The library is small but once you are signed up, you can order books from all over the county and have them delivered to their building in a few days. During the summer they have reading programs and guests that do fun songs or bring crazy animals. The librarians are fantastic. They always have a smile and are wonderful about helping you. I am very thankful to this library! The only complaint I have is that it is only open 3 days a week.
