Born and raised in Paso Robles, Richard began his career in viticulture at the age of 6 and became a well known expert in the field of grape growing – especially Zinfandel. During his 70 year career, he worked with and advised vineyard owners throughout the county. His expertise, technique and wisdom were widely recognized. He worked with growers to found Independent Grape Growers of Paso Robles Area(IGGPRA). Richard is remembered for his generosity in giving thousands of cuttings to local grape growers, serving as teacher and mentor to many. He is also remembered for delivering tons of garden and orchard produce to friends, senior centers, food banks and strangers each summer. We are deeply grateful for Richard’s generosity in the past and for his significant gift to the library through his Trust.

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!
