Thanks

Thanks to Union Pacific Foundation!

We don’t have photos of this one, but we’re so happy to announce that we received $5000 from Union Pacific Foundation to help fund literacy outreach programs at Scott Lane Preschool.

Appreciative Patrons

Appreciative Patrons

We’re always happy to share the library’s success stories! Sometimes, it’s just as easy as having a quiet place to study: Just five minutes ago another one of our patrons shared his success story.

It featured Dave Filoni, executive producer for Star Wars Rebels (and more!), Lego contests, artists from Pixar, lots of cosplay… it was amazing. Of course the 101st Legion showed […]

Thanks for shopping yesterday!

A huge thanks to everyone who shopped at the new Whole Foods Market in Santa Clara yesterday! We got to hang out with Eddie, the store manager. One of our long-time volunteers stopped by to say hello! As did one of the people who works at the library. And not one, but two groups of […]
