Happy New Year!!  We had a busy fall and holiday season.  This fiscal year, changes were made to funding policies such that our middle school book clubs and now being funded with system (SMCL) funds.   As a results, we ended up with surplus monies that we are redirecting to our adult book clubs as well as replenishing low stocks of storytime and craft supplies and purchasing new bins for organizing those supplies.

Thanks to your generous support, staff engaged in a team building activity of Gender Identify Training with the San Mateo Pride Center followed by lunch in the fall.  This spring we plan to participate in a community service activity.

Thank you so much for all you do.  Your dedication to the Pacifica Libraries means so much.

Warm regards,

Julie Finklang, Library Manager, Pacifica Libraries
