The Library Action Committee has organized a Saturday morning Forum especially for folks who commute out–or travel long distance within–San Benito County. We heard from previous Forum participants that evening events make it hard to arrive in time. Everyone should have a chance to influence the decisions about the future of our Library.


Attached are the flyers (English/Spanish). Please encourage at least ONE family member, friend, or neighbor to join the Forum, Saturday, January 25th, at 9:30 a.m. We’ll have coffee and treats ready for the hard work ahead.

Community Food Bank’s mission is to provide food, nutritional education and advocacy for our neighbors in need within San Benito County.
