Three of us from the Foundation Board met yesterday with Brian Reynolds and each of San Luis Obispo County's five elected supervisors.  We were impressed with the interest and support of libraries expressed by all of the supervisors, and delighted with this opportunity to talk with them about the future of our libraries.  More new ideas than we expected emerged from the conversations -- be assured: they've been thinking about libraries! -- and we're looking forward to finding ways to implement many of them.  Stay tuned, and ask how you can help!

The Board of Directors of the Foundation for San Luis Obispo County Public Libraries welcomes new Directors Susan Gillespie (Nipomo) and Anne Harris (Atascadero), who join the Board as representatives of their respective Friends of the Library.  Thanks to the Atascadero and Nipomo Friends for responding to our invitation with such distinguished nominees!  We're delighted to have them join the Board, and look forward to adding members from other Friends groups very soon, to strengthen our joint countywide library-literacy advocacy efforts.
