The supervisors’ 4-0 vote, with Ron Roberts in Asia on business travel, approved the donations including the six from Friends of the Rancho San Diego Library and authorized Board of Supervisors chairwoman Kristin Gaspar to sign a letter of appreciation to the Friends of the Library organizations which provided the donations.

“We have a fantastic County Library system, and I’m grateful our volunteers and donors continue to make our libraries great with their support and generosity,” said Supervisor Bill Horn.

The donations cover the period from Jan. 1, 2018, to June 30, 2018.

“The preponderance of our donations comes from our Friends of the Library group,” said County Library director Migell Acosta. “They’re a really important partner for us to bring higher-quality programming to our libraries, and of course we appreciate their support. Most of them run bookstores, and that’s how they raise funds.”

Between Jan. 1 and June 30 Friends of the Rancho San Diego Library donated Storytime, art and teen programs valued at $1,238.48; teen programs, beads and Valentine treats valued at $376.47; teen programs, beads and refreshments valued at $878.22; teen programs, Storytime, and crafts valued at $897.18; performers, beads, and poetry prizes valued at $2,902.57; and teen programs and supplies valued at $995.51.
