A message from Friends of the Del Mar Library President
This is an exciting time for Friends of Del Mar Library. We are in the midst of an effort to “refurbish” the Library. Our aim is to update the library interior to serve the needs of our current users. The main library service desk will be removed and a smaller one installed. Some of the library stacks will be removed and replaced by gondolas that are on wheels and can be moved as needed. This will open this space allowing more sunlight and will enable us all to see more of this fantastic historical building. Teens will have a designated area. A laptop bar will be added. In the children’s area the computer desks will be changed and some new furniture added. New carpet will be installed throughout the library. The current carpet is the original from 1996 opening.
The Friends of Del Mar Library, a community non-profit (501.c.3) received a grant from San Diego County Board of Supervisors at Supervisor Pam Slater-Price’s recommendation for new furniture. Four chairs and two tables have already been purchased. Come sit in these very comfortable craftsman style chairs. More furniture will come. The Friends of Del Mar Library have committed to paying for the new carpet. The Del Mar Farmer’s Market Board has pledged to aid in this carpet purchase which will be a significant cost. Since the Library building is owned by the City of Del Mar, they will undertake to assist with many of the interior updates that will include removal of the service desk and electrical upgrades. The San Diego County Library system will supply the gondolas, new smaller service desk, and laptop bar.
The Board of FDML believes these changes will enhance all your library experience.
