The grand opening of the new Peninsula Community Library is happening tomorrow, Sept. 7, 2019 at 10 a.m. But a special reception for the major donors was held tonight to celebrate the brand new library on the corner of Center Road and Island View Road.

Library director Vicki Shurly honored the donors who made it happen, and library board president Heatherlyn Johnson introduced Tim Carroll, who spoke a few words about the legacy of the library for generations to come.

  1. Jane, You did a fantastic photo job of the new library. And I loved the picture of you, Dean and Heatherlyn in front of the fireplace in memory of Mary. She would be so happy to see that. Thanks for all you do.

  2. I’m looking at three bottles of white wine in one of the photos and not one is from Old Mission Peninsula. Somebody really screwed up!
