What's Happening @ Your Library                              July 2016

 Dear Library Member,

Visit your San Diego County Library in July for a variety of programs and activities for all.

SDCL has many programs, only some of which are highlighted. Be sure to check out our full events calendar to find programs that interest you.

Reception for Vickie Velasco
Sunday, July 17 ay 2:00 p.m.
San Diego County Library and Aging & Independence Services present San Diego Legends: Living Well, an annual recognition comprised of painted portraits by local artist Mona Mills, photographs, and impact statements about local elders who lead by example.
The Legends exemplify lifestyles that embrace inclusion, spiritual integrity, humanism and healthy living. Their lives and accomplishments are a testament to the nobility of hard work, as well as respect for each other and one's self. As the exhibit is displayed at a new library each month, residents have the opportunity to meet the Legends, hear about their experiences, and participate in related programs.
The exhibit continues at the El Cajon Library Branch through August 1
The Summer Reading Challenge is on! From June 1-August 31, the San Diego County Library will be giving out prizes for those who meet or exceed reading goals this summer!
