Welcome to the web site of the Friends of Coast Community Library (FOCCL).
In 1989 FOCCL  began as a small library in the back room of a church in
Point Arena.  In 2004, it moved into its current building which it purchased and
renovated with local funds and labor. For a more detailed history see the
Join Us page.
Coast Community Library is now a branch of the Mendocino County Library system
and is supported by FOCCL funds and volunteers as well as by the County.
