Despite the many serious challenges of 2020, the Friends of the Capitola Library saw a number of outcomes for which we are grateful. Progress on the new library building was not suspended due to COVID restrictions. Otto Construction was able to continue working without interruption. When PG&E finally fixed the overhead wires in the fall, work progressed even more efficiently.
In October we were able to re-open our bookstore in a new, larger space thanks to the generosity of the Capitola Mall management. Operating the store would not have been possible without the help of a wonderful group of volunteers: Ginny Morris, Jackie and Doug Russo, Carol Fuller, Sandra Rogers, Michelle Jesberg, Irene Freiberg, Donna Badawi and Constance, Linda Jordan, and Kari Johnston.
Along with the rest of the globe, the Capitola Friends look forward to a healthier, kinder 2021.
