The Friends of the Arroyo Grande Library would like to thank the generous community members who contributed to our recent fundraiser, Sunday in the Stacks.
It is heartening to receive such positive response to requests for donations, particularly during our current economy, and we gratefully acknowledge the following: Albertsons, Arroyo Grande; Baileyana Vineyards; Costco, San Luis Obispo; Katcho and Araxie Achadjian; Laetitia Vineyards & Winery; McClintock’s Restaurants; Miner’s Hardware; Opera SLO; PCPA Theaterfest; Rooster Creek Tavern; SLOCO Data & Printing; Sweet Earth Organic Chocolates; Talley Vineyards; Taylor Rents; Trader Joe’s, Arroyo Grande; Walmart, Arroyo Grande; Wilshire Health & Community Services Inc.; and the Friends members and volunteers who made our event such a success.
We achieved our goal to provide funds to purchase a bilingual English/Spanish edition of the Early Literacy Station, a specialized computer/software system to enhance literacy in our youngest patrons. The Arroyo Grande Library serves one of the highest number of young patrons in the county, and new tools which promote early literacy are essential to their future success.
Many thanks to all for recognizing the community’s need to support libraries and our kids!
