Felton Library Friends is grateful to all who made this year’s Festival a tremendous success. The Festival and New Leaf Community Day together added over $5000 to the fund that we’ll use to launch our community capital campaign for furnishings and equipment for the library once the base funding is secured.

As important were the wonderful community connections — residents meeting with Library Director Teresa Landers and architect Teall Messer to discuss building plans, families enjoying delicious food and the musical talent of the San Lorenzo Valley, and children creating and swapping books and enjoying many other wonderful activities provided by community groups.
