California Awards $80 Million in Library Construction Grants
Oakland will build a new library next to two elementary schools in one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods, where many people struggle beyond the most basic reading skills.
You helped draw attention to these struggling public library systems. Thank you.
The Santee Branch Library thanks you posting the library’s name. Alison King of San Francisco found the library and sent two books. What a great service you are providing!!

The Children’s librarians here at the Vista Branch just gave me their most recently Amazon packing slips for our Wish List file. Books from Topeka KA, Edina MN, Portland OR, Los Angeles CA, Long Beach CA, Stamford CT, and Davidson NC. Who would have ever believed it possible!
I can’t wait for our adult books to start arriving so that I can open gifts from such exotic and faraway locations! Thanks again to your wonderful readers.

I just wanted to give you an update on my donation of the Spiderwick Chronicles to the Fletcher Hills Public Library. I received a very nice thank you note from the Branch Operations Manager today, thanking me on behalf of the staff and patrons of that Library for my gift. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a thank-you note that made me happier…so thank you, Pamie, for making this possible!
Hi Pamie! Just checked your website and once again your donors have amazed me. The UPS man was just here and the first three packages have arrived. We’re sooo excited and feel truly blessed by your readers’ generosity. Please thank everyone for including our little branch in this program and we love reading their comments.

I’m attaching a not-so-wonderful photo (I’m in the green, Brenna is in the Summer Reading t-shirt) of the stack that was delivered the other day. It’s as tall as Brenna! (She’s the Branch Librarian).
Again, thanks for thinking of us. The response from around the country is inspiring!
