Something they want, Something they need, Something to wear, Something to read.

As a librarian and devoted book reader, I have always given the gift of books. Everybody needs a good book (or many good books) for Christmas!
So if you are shopping for books this holiday season, please consider my books as gifts for children or adults. You can order online on Amazon or at anchr.org. Chico vendors like Bidwell Mansion, Chico History Museum, Made in Chico, and Bidwell Supply Co. carry my books, as well as Treasures from Paradise and the Rusty Wagon in Orland. The Tehama County Genealogical and Historical Society is selling great local history books at the Tehama County Library.
At the ANCHR website you will find a host of other titles about Northern California history. History makes great gifts!
There’s more information about where to buy and how to order my books on the My Books tab at the top of this page.
Happy holiday reading!!!
