Board members John Green, Anthony Kalvans and Richard Harrison took the oath of office at the December meeting. They join incumbents Connie Jarvis and Gib Buckman. At that meeting, First District Supervisor Frank Mecham presented certificates of recognition to former directors Richard Smithin and Dale Hamblin for their years of service to the district.
The San Miguel Library, at the top of 13th Street hill by the park, is participating in the 2013 San Luis Obispo County Adult Winter Reading Program "Hot Reads for Cold Nights," which begins on Jan. 15 and ends on April 16.
