Volunteers are library's 'glue'

Single-room Smith River Branch offers books, wifi and movie rentals

California’s northernmost library lies opposite a cow barn at the back of the Smith River Community Hall.

The single room houses adult fiction, children’s books, reference books and community information in English and Spanish. There are three computers for public use, offering residents access to the Internet. It’s the only public wifi spot in town and, since the Smith River Ray’s Food Place closed in 2013, the library is the sole place to rent movies.

But very few people, even those who live in the tiny community — population 866 — know the Smith River Branch Library exists.
