Celebrations

ALL of Salinas's public libraries are scheduled to SHUT DOWN for lack of
funds
We MUST not and WILL not allow this to happen

Libraries are the soul of our communities, providing vital services to
all–especially the most low-income members and children. If we allow the
Salinas libraries to close, we will see a wave of library closings
throughout the country. We NEED YOU to help save our libraries!


Join famous authors, poets, elected officials, community folks and book
lovers from all over the state for a 24-hour celebration of reading and
literacy, starting at 1pm on Saturday, April 2nd and culminating on Sunday,
April 3 with the yearly Cesar Chavez Holiday march and cultural celebration
in Salinas. Bring your family, your sleeping bag, and your favorite books!!!

We will be calling on Governor Schwarzenegger and other state elected
officials to find equitable solutions to pay for the operating costs of our
libraries in poorer communities.

Can we unite to keep Salinas libraries open?
Si, Se Puede! Yes, we can!
