New Antioch librarian strives for community involvement

From East Bay Times

” Her motto may well be: “The library card is the best deal in town.”And, now Ruth Boyer will get to put her slogan into action as the new community library manager for the two Antioch branches (18th Street and Prewett).“I am always interested in strengthening and growing library programs and services,” Boyer said. “I’m especially excited about trying to get library cards into the hands of more people in the community and letting them know how much their card and their local library has to offer.”For the last two years, Boyer has led the way at the Martinez Library. She has been with the Contra Costa County Library since 2005 and a librarian since 2011. She said she enjoys learning about the communities in Contra Costa, and Antioch was “high on her list.“When I saw the opportunity come up, I jumped at the chance to serve a community I’ve always wanted to learn more about.”Additionally, Boyer is focused on social service organizations in the city.”
