One of the most important roles of a public library is to preserve community memory through local history collections. Last year a generous donation to support access to local history was made by Friends Board member Dennis Mar through the Friends, and a second donation from publisher Patricia Hamilton added to our resources.
Funds paid for archival review and organization of boxes of historic documents, a partnership with the Pacific Grove Historical Society to digitize historic newspapers and a fresh new program to connect local history buffs with Pacific Grove's unique stories and treasured past.
The Friends are sponsoring this fall Local History Spotlight series in August and September to highlight this local investment.
