OCEAN BEACH, CA. Ocean Beach residents who have organized recently to save the Ocean Beach Library from closure, have called for another rally in front of the OB branch. The rally has been called for Saturday, November 22nd at noon. This second rally in front of the OB library is part of a series of events to keep the issue about the libraries alive and is being held in conjunction with rallies and leafleting at all 7 branches that are slated for closure, as part of Mayor Jerry Sanders’ budget proposals. A group of activists who have coalesced around the Friends of the San Diego Library and their local neighborhood affiliates have called for the simultaneous actions.
A loose network of groups, including the Friends of the OB Library, the Ocean Beach Historical Society, the OB Rag blog and a whole bunch of concerned OB residents have spearheaded local efforts to save the community’s historical branch. Everyone is encouraged to show up and bring signs.
