These hikes will allow participants to explore new areas and help prepare them for more strenuous hikes. Experienced hikers will assist with reading topographical maps, identifying local flora and fauna, and the proper essentials needed for every hike. Participants will be entered into a random drawing for a gift card from a recreational equipment store (REI, Backcountry, and Sierra Trading Post). 

Due to the nature of this program, it might not be suitable for everyone. Although some trails will have paved walking paths, these hikes will take place on dirt and gravel trails with minor ascents and descents. Participants will have to fill out a waiver to verify that they are able to complete these hikes successfully.

About the branch

The pleasing design of the Anderson-Foothill Branch has two unique elements as part of its plan. The first is a passive solar energy design that includes earth berming, window placement for solar heating, and zone supplemental heating/cooling. The second element of this 14,900 square foot community library built in 1985, expanded in 1992 and in 2002, is a modular design.

The Anderson-Foothill Branch has a meeting room available for public use with tables, chairs, and a projector screen. The Anderson-Foothill Branch's outdoor amphitheater is a popular location for summer concerts. Free parking is available to the north and south of the building, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library.
