Our Foundation

The Rancho Mirage Library & Observatory Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising the necessary funds to maintain the Library’s status as the best for its size in California. The Board is comprised of energetic and involved individuals that are appointed by the Rancho Mirage City Council and who are committed to maintaining the Library for all ages and interests.

Book Nook

The Library Foundation offers the “Book Nook,” a convenient, well-stocked bookstore selling some new and many nearly-new books for readers. Click below for hours of operation.


The Library is filled with special touches from each of our volunteers and with their help, we continue to offer a high level of service to our patrons.

Thanks to the support of our generous donors.
