Groundbreaking Ceremony for New Brisbane Library

It was a successful Groundbreaking Ceremony for the New Brisbane Library, where a small crowd was treated to poetry read by the current San Mateo County Poet Laureate Lisa Rosenberg, followed by acknowledgements from Mayor Clarke Conway, Supervisor David Canepa, Friends of the Brisbane Library Co-Presidents Wendy Towle and Dawn David, and last but not least, Library JPA Board Member and Brisbane Councilmember Karen Cunningham. All the Brisbane Councilmembers, Supervisor Canepa, Brisbane City Manager Clay Holstine, and the newest (and youngest) member of the Friends of the Brisbane Library, Chaya-Bella David, then got down to business...officially breaking ground for the New Brisbane Library! Thank you to San Mateo County Libraries, Brisbane Library, and San Mateo County for all of your support in making the Groundbreaking such a success.  Brisbane’s new Library is scheduled to open in time for the 2019-20 school year. We can’t wait for the Grand Opening!
