FOL donation supports summer 2017 library program
Rosarito mayor, Mirna Rincón, expressed appreciation to Friends of the Library board members with a recognition plaque for their sponsorship of this summer’s program “Mis Vacaciones en la Biblioteca.” (My Vacation at the Library). FOL provided boxes and boxes of arts and crafts supplies (some of which you see in the photos) for the multiweek program in 3 library branches. In the ceremony opening the program on Saturday, July 15, Susan Shea, FOL President, also presented books donated by Rosarito's sister city, Long Beach, California.
Hundreds of children and their parents were present Saturday morning, where each child received a camp t-shirt. Summer programs such as this provide valuable enrichment activities for children who otherwise might have little to do and little supervision during the school summer break.
