What's Happening at the Morro Bay Library This Month
News & HighlightsDecember 2016

Hi <<First Name>>,

 

Happy HolidaysThank you for all that you have done to support your Morro Bay Library this year. Whether it has been through a generous financial donation, or attendance at programs, or checking out a book, or just offering a hello to staff.... you make a difference everyday when you support libraries. The Morro Bay Library could not do what it does without the generous support of a caring community. May this be a particularly wonderful holiday for you and everyone special in your life. 

Smile Amazon  As you know, this is a library book discussion group. Each time you check out books, you support your Morro Bay Library.  As your Group Facilitator, I typically will buy mine. This is because of the preparation work I do ahead of our discussion group. Thus, I thought I would mention, that the books we read and discuss in our book discussion group I purchase through Amazon Smile. I know my donation counts by supporting the wonderful charitable volunteer organization, Morro Bay in Bloom. If you haven't noticed, they are dedicated to the beautification of Morro Bay, two hours at a time.... of which some of it has been spent at our Morro Bay Library! Thank you volunteers for all that you do!  

Earth KindnessAnd since this is the time of giving.... Kindness does make the world a better place. And that's because it's simply contagious. Think about it: You witness a random act of kindness, and you can't help but pay it forward yourself. Whether you want to perk up a loved one, coworker, acquaintance, or yourself, check out these 99 ways you can practice kindness that cost little to no time or money. Whatever you do it will make a lasting impact. Just click this linkHoliday Hours
