Yvonne Seabold, Marianne Coffey and Joanne Fields are working on a history of the SBFOL.
We would like to remember all our wonderful Friends throughout the years, record all of our accomplishments in our efforts to keep libraries open and services available, and perhaps inspire future Friends who will follow us.
We are hoping many of you have photos and other memorabilia, stories and suggestions for how our history should be written. We would appreciate anything you could contribute to this effort.
Our history will be self-published and offered for sale in our bookstore, County Museum and other venues.
Please send anything you may have to SBFOL Attn: History Project, P.O. Box 403, Ventura, CA 93002. If you have photos through the years to lend us and need them picked up instead, Marianne Coffey can be reached at (805) 558-0756.
