The Chico Public Library, Inc. was started in 1975 by a women's club and has moved into a larger location and has grown over the years both in the numbers and types of items in the collection. The library started with the donation of used books and now has adult books, books for pre-teens and children's books, entertainment videos, large print books, audio and talking books, educational and travel videos, periodicals, current print encyclopedias, and other reference material. There are 9 computers for patron's use running on DSL, and we provide educational software, on-line practice tests for GED, SAT and military exams. The library will support any patron living in Chico using this GED test practice program for 10 hours or more by paying half of their GED test fee. Six of the computers are specially designed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to provide children's programming, adult office software such as spread sheet, database, word processing and resume writing. One computer is specifically accessible to a patron with disabilities and our bathroom, aisle space and doorways all meet ADA requirements. The library has an ESL class and a summer reading program. Computer classes are taught several times a year. The library particularly thanks the Tocker Foundation whose generosity has permitted updating the facility and adding equipment, books and shelving. Thanks go to Seawall Elam Foundation and the J. Frank Dobie Foundations well as Libri for their generosity which has allowed us to increase our collections especially for children, and to DUC for their wonderful art materials.
