If you haven't been downtown in the last couple of days you missed it! Demolition on the old library began Monday, Oct 26 and most of the building is now gone...just a bit of the foundation and debris remains today. To see the bulldozer in action, go to:
Friends of the Fallbrook Library is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the Fallbrook Branch of the San Diego County Library. The group is spearheading the campaign to raise funds for a new and expanded library and cultural center complex to be built on grounds of the existing facility.
Today - the reality:
existing library, built in 1987, is 8,100 square feet
circulation averages 240,000 items per year
there are 26,000+ cardholders in Fallbrook, Bonsall, DeLuz and Rainbow area
too few computers (wait time may be one hour)
space cannot accommodate the summer reading program special events (must be held off-site)

The new library is COMING!
Tomorrow - the dream:
expand the facility to approximately 17,500 square feet
provide a state-of-the-art library and community facility
increase the number of computers
enhance the children’s library
include a “teen” space
incorporate a community room
provide space and seating for reading and study
expand the bookstore area
Now, here is where you'll find me most of the time especially after a day at the Farmer's Market! I love the charm of this small town and how I love a good book!
