Did you know that the Lodi Public Library was formed in October 1885? That is 137 years of supporting children, youth, family and community. The Lodi Public Library is committed to meeting the informational, educational, vocational, recreational and cultural needs and interests of patrons living in Lodi and the neighboring areas of Woodbridge, Lockeford, Acampo, Morada and Stockton.
We have supported our community library since 1979. Our mission is to advocate for and promote library services, and we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars since our founding to fund community programs, a robust and current media collection, and high-quality innovative technology.
The Friends of the Lodi Public Library hopes you wil join us in our goal to have fun while raising funds. Library staff want to offer STEAM-based experiences for children and youth in 2023. These activities will provide our young patrons with opportunities to participate in hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) events.
The Friends of the Lodi Public Library offers you an evening of TRIVIA BEE entertainment at Five Window Beer Company. Quizmaster Kevin (Quizmasterkevin@instagram.com) will challenge you with questions on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math).
Jump on board as we go Full STEAM Ahead to provide enriching opportunities to Lodi Public Library youth.
The Friends of the Lodi Public Library would like to thank all of those who made our first Trivia Night at the Library a HUGE success. Together we raised $7,354 to benefit the children's section of the Lodi Public Library. These efforts would not have been possible without the following generous parties:
