We are open and off to a great start. The Great Castro Valley Book Pass was a big success thanks to organizing efforts of a dedicated team of Library Staff and volunteers. 70 participants manned check-in stations where the 1500 who lined the route picked up a commemorative tee-shirt (70% recycled material, of course). It took about 2 hours to pass the 300 books hand to hand from the old Library to the New Library and the feedback has been that good time was had by all.

Local residents are embracing the new Library with open arms. Typical days we’ve seen 3 times the business as the Redwood Road location and incredibly the 145 parking places are full or nearly so each day.
Dozens of people are using the wi-fi on their own laptops, the collection if flying off the shelves, the public computer stations are mostly full, the homework and teen rooms are buzzing after school, and the Friends of the Library Bookstore and Fresh Start Cafe are doing great business. The staff is here to help you find your way around and we’ll offer tours every half hour this Sunday, November 8.
See you in the Library.
