Background

San Diego County Library
The Bonita Business and Professional Association (BBPA) has vacated their office space adjacent to the Friends of the Library bookstore at the Bonita-Sunnyside Branch Library located at 4375 Bonita Road. Accordingly, the Friends of the Library would like to expand their bookstore to make use of the vacated space. Today’s allocation to the San Diego County Library will provide funds necessary to expand the Friends of the Library Bookstore.

Linkage to the County of San Diego Strategic Plan
These grants provide an opportunity for the Board of Supervisors to assist worthy organizations that promote the County’s vision of a region that is safe, healthy, and thriving.

Respectfully submitted,
