Friends of the Descanso Library supports programs that help make the library the center of our community.
Our mission is to promote the growth and welfare of the Descanso Branch of the San Diego County Library, to enrich its resources, to make its services better known to the community, and to work with the branch manager in making these services more readily available.
One of our first projectswas to raise funds to assist with the construction of our new library building in 1997.
The Library Garden in Fall
We raise funds to purchase items the library needs. The county library budget has been reduced each of the past few years.
During 2010, we provided matching funds to assist the county in building the 500 square foot expansion. This expansion enlarged the attractive children's room and cleared space for a teen room with a laptop bar where our local teens can meet.
We volunteer for library activities:
Library volunteers assist with children's programs, Book store sales, In-Library Support, landscaping and maintenance of the beautiful garden area.
We provide funds for special programs:
We fund programs for children and adults and provide matching funds to help purchase books, CD's, DVD's and other items. During 2012, we ordered extra laptops that students may use to do homework, purchased a large TV where we can show movies and provide X-Box for teens.
