About 18 volunteers braved the early morning chill to volunteer at the Big Sur Half Marathon on November 13 on behalf of the Friends of Pacific Grove Library. The darkness soon gave way to a beautiful sunny day. Thank you to all the volunteers who came and helped us raise money for the library.
MCGives! is the Monterey County Weekly Newspaper's annual fundraising campaign. It's purpose is to raise awareness and money for our nonprofit community. We were chosen again this year to participate. See the attached flyer to read about our Big Idea for this year's donations.
The library bustled with activity on October 29 with the Read-A-Thon for Kids presented by the Friends of the Pacific Grove Library. Over 80 eager readers, 130 generous sponsors, a sizzling performance of Room on the Broom by teachers at Robert Down School, 5 guest readers, 2 scary storytellers, 2 tables stacked with food, 25 volunteers, and 9 hours of fun = $10,000.00 raised to renovate the children's room! Thank you to all the individuals and businesses who donated money to sponsor readers.
