On Saturday, March 30, we kicked off the opening of our new Families and Books Center
at the Fair Oaks Library with a celebratory cake cutting with County Supervisor Susan Peters, Rotary Club of Fair Oaks
members Beth Wilcoxen and Debra Hagel, and Branch Manager Lana Adlawan.
Library Director Rivkah Sass also joined in the celebration, thanking the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks for their support of the project and their over 170 volunteer hours of service
during the course of the remodel.
Over 450 people attended the event, which included face painting by the magical fairies from Happily Ever Laughter, balloon animals and cake galore. The Resource Area for Teaching
(RAFT) was also on hand, demonstrating science and math crafts for kids, all with the same goal: making as much noise as possible in the library! (The kids loved it.)
Our new space, complete with three iPads loaded with apps to support early literacy skills is a comfortable, welcoming environment for the families of Sacramento Public Library.
The Fair Oaks Library also recently started offering four story times a week for the 0-5 age group, so please check out our events and we hope to see you in our library!
The creation of the Families and Books Center was made possible through the generous support of the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks
and the Friends of Fair Oaks Library
