Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

Please pause to take a 3 minute survey about Pacifica Libraries . The City is seeking your input regarding a two-branch operating model in Pacifica -- Sanchez and Sharp Park. At the September 24 th City Council meeting, the Council adopted an innovative two-branch operating model for enhancing services at the Sanchez Library along with a full-service new library at the existing Sharp Park library site. The Sanchez Library is being proposed with an Open Access model and design combined with Community Center Annex space. Public input about this innovative operating model and design is being sought now and into this winter. More details about the libraries project is here .

Please let me know if you have comments or questions, and  thank you  for wanting to  Connect with Pacifica !

Sincerely,
KEVIN WOODHOUSE
City Manager
