City library celebrates two red-letter dates
In honor of two very special occasions, the Paso Robles City Library invites the public to an open house on May 13, beginning at 10 a.m. with a special Friends of the Library Book Sale.
Then, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., the library will offer tours showcasing some new and exciting changes in the library, guest speakers, demonstrations, and refreshments.
This year, the Paso Robles Library Foundation celebrates its 20th anniversary of supporting the library’s commitment to excellence in library service. Established in 1997 as a non-profit organization under Internal Revenue Code 501(3)c, the Foundation has provided financial support over the years for programs such as the Summer Reading Program, for materials such as books and audio-visual items, and for replacement of library furnishings.
The library is also marking the 22nd anniversary of its 1995 move from the Carnegie library building in the City Park to its current location. With over 24,000 cardholders and over 277,000 items circulating each year, the library continues to provide a place to discover, to learn, to grow, and to empower the community with the means to achieve its vision for the future.
The Paso Robles City library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday – Friday 10 a.m.-8 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information on library programs and events, please call (805) 237-3870 or visit www.prcity.com/library.
