ECLF Community Events

As part of our public outreach efforts, the El Cerrito Library Foundation participates in several community events each year:

  • Earth Day
  • worldOne July 4th festival
  • Senior Resource Fair
  • National Voter Registration Day (NVRD)
  • Rotary Club of El Cerrito’s Annual Sip and Savor

Foundation’s 2020 Community Events Curtailed by Covid 19

Because of the mandated Covid 19 Shelter-in-Place directive the City of El Cerrito and the Rotary Club of El Cerrito cancelled their events. Our normal participation in the NVRD event has been staffing a table outside the library to provide voter registration information and assistance to library users on NVRD, the fourth Tuesday of every September. In 2020, we changed our NVRD participation from tabling to posting a series of information articles on the ECLF web site from late August through October helping readers to prepare for voting, encouraging Vote-by-Mail voting, and providing locations of local voting sites and secure ballot drop boxes.
