Santa Monica: Pico Branch Library buzz

from the Santa Monica Daily Press

“Now that the Pico Branch Library is open, many of you may be wondering what’s going on with the new library. Well, it is like participating in a marathon; most of the time you run and sometimes you run even harder. Getting ready for a marathon takes perseverance, training and encouragement from friends and family. As the Pico Branch Manager, I see the Pico Branch as running a marathon where the community kept their perseverance to have this library open in the heart of the Pico neighborhood and participated in community meetings about the site, design and programming of the new branch.”
