News From the PG Library Friends

Diana Godwin

Bittersweet News. Diana Godwin has announced her retirement at the end of this year.  

In her tenure as Library Director, she has guided us through such momentous events as the completion of the renewal project, the rehoming of the library, COVID 19 and the merging of the Friends and Foundation. 

Diana has overseen the launch of highly lauded adult and teen programming, with an emphasis on poetry promotion, achieved full staffing, and navigated the adoption of a new electric outreach vehicle through the F&F MCGIVES! Campaign 2022, supported in part by funding provided by the State of California, administered by the California State Library.
