VENTURA, Calif. - The Ventura County Library Foundation has accepted a $50,000 donation from the Premier America Credit Union. The donation will be used toward the purchase of a bookmobile to provide mobile library service to approximately 70 communities in a two-week rotation throughout Ventura County.
The check presentation was held on December 14, 2016, at the Saticoy branch library, located on Violeta Street.
“This bookmobile will reach all residents of Ventura County no matter how far they live from a branch or what barriers stand in the way of their use of a library,” said Sandy Berg, Secretary of the Library Foundation. “And, when they enter the bookmobile they will discover a world of not only books, but technology including computers and access to all types of STEM learning. We are so thrilled with the generosity of Premier America in providing us with this gift that will help make this dream come true”.
The Ventura County Library Foundation supports the Ventura County Library with gifts toward the bookmobile, books and other materials and support of literacy services. Donations can be mailed to The Ventura County Library Foundation, 5600 Everglades St., Ventura, CA 93003.
“Premier America is excited to partner with the Ventura County Library Foundation to further support the local community by bringing library services directly to those who are currently without access,” said Christina Madaras, Director of Community Development and Corporate Citizenship. “We can’t wait for the bookmobile to launch and see barrier-free literacy in action!”
