DONORS


Mary P. Studer-Schwartz was a longtime resident of Paso Robles and a key contributor to the community. In her trust, Mary gifted the Foundation with major funding that will enable us to consider enhancements to our Library that we never thought possible. The Foundation Board of Directors cannot adequately express our deep gratitude to Mary for her generosity and for giving us this amazing opportunity!
 

DONORS


Kate Morgans, a longtime supporter of the Paso Robles Library, just made it possible to add approximately 100 new books to the Children's book collection! Because of Kate's generous donation to the Library Foundation, Melissa Bailey, Children's Services Librarian, selected new books targeted to early readers thru 4th grade. This significant donation was made in memory of Kate's Mother, Patricia Morgans, who was a Children's Librarian in the Philadelphia area for many years. Kate spent much of her life "hanging out" in libraries and her love of them continues today. THANK YOU, KATE!

The Pacific Premier Bank recently presented the Library Foundation with a $2,500 donation to benefit the Paso Robles City Library. Thank you Pacific Premier Bank! We are sincerely grateful for your generous and continued support.

Today is GIVING TUESDAY and the Paso Robles Library GIVING TREE is up and decorated! This is the Foundation's annual fundraiser for the purchase of 100
new books for the Library's collection. Pictured next to the tree (L toR): Paula Wansa, Foundation Board Member and Giving Tree Chairperson; Melissa Bailey, Children's Librarian; Angelica Fortin, City Librarian. The tree will be up until Dec. 31st. Please stop by the Library and help us reach our "100 Books" goal!

With major funding from the Helen and Will Webster Foundation, replaced and refurbished 21 year-old seating in the Library. The Adult and Children’s sections of the library have 83 new chairs.  Benches and couches have been reupholstered.

Kathy Brown (Bryden) began her love of books and reading at the Carnegie Library as a child. Because of her belief in the importance of libraries and how they enrich a community, she recently made a major donation to the Foundation which will benefit our Library in the coming year. The funds will enable us to repair our microfilm equipment which stores historical records as well as purchase special book collections. Kathy and the Library staff will be reviewing the current “wish list” of new books. On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Foundation and the City Librarian, we wish to express our deep gratitude to Kathy for giving us this opportunity!
