A major purchase has been made of new books and magazines for users of the San Marino Public Library. These materials will be processed and made available throughout the summer, so stop in regularly and see what is new. This large purchase came about as a result of a grant from the Global Languages Materials program, which is funded by the Library Services and Technology Act. This grant encouraged the involvement of people in the community to decide what the library needs and to help select titles to be purchased.
One of the objectives was to experiment with some different kinds of Chinese materials. The San Marino Library thanks the twenty volunteers who attended meetings and went on shopping trips to help select these materials. Beyond the State grant, further funding came from the generous annual donation from the Chinese Club of San Marino, as well as the solid support of the Friends of the San Marino Public Library.
