This summer, the Winters Library hours are:

  • Monday/Wednesday: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Mask Only 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • Tuesday/Thursday: 12 – 8 p.m.
  • Friday/Saturday: 1 – 5 p.m.

The Winters Library is closed on Sundays.

The library hours are scheduled through out the summer and will resume the “School In Session” hours on Aug. 20.

New program
The Winters Community Library launched Mangonada Mondays. The free program, sponsored by the Winters Friends of the Library, is hosted on Mondays from 3 – 4 p.m. in the Margaret Parsons Room. The program is ideal for children ages six to 12. 

Attendees are able to enjoy a refreshing Mangonada slushy and participate in making a variety of fun crafts.

The library launched the program on June 6, and children were able to braid friendship bracelets for their craft.

Upcoming crafts on the program include:

June 20: DIY miniature forest

July 11: DIY camping scene

July 25: Soap popsicle

Community members do not need to make a reservation in order to participate in Mangonada Monday activities. A full listing of library events, both virtual and in-person, is available on the Winters Community Library page on the Yolo County Library website.

The Master Gardeners of Yolo County are also working on bringing events to the library garden.
