Dear Ocean Beach Friends of the Library,
We made a whopping $528.35 at our Book Sale on Saturday! Many thanks to all of you who worked, donated, and bought. We really enjoyed visiting with our OB community members and visitors from around the world. We certainly enjoyed the presence of Kathy Blavatt and the Ocean Beach Historical Society–thank you so much.
As always, thanks for your support!

The Ocean Beach Historical Society wants to thank the OB Library and Ocean Beach Friends of the Library for having us join them at their book sale. OBHS Archivist Barbara Busch, board members Ray Blavatt and Steve Rowell also helped out. Steve took some photos of the event. We sold quite a few books, maps and looks it like we will be gaining some new Ocean Beach Historical Society members.
People also looked at the plans and signed the petition to get the city to build the long awaited OB Library expansion. (If you haven’t signed yet stop by the library to sign).
Events like this bring out so many nice locals and great volunteers that make our community special. Thanks Friends of the Library for your work and the OB Rag for reporting it.
