Community Appreciation Day/Library Anniversary

The Grover Beach Community Library held our annual Community Appreciation Day on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at 5:00 pm, at the library, 240 N 9th Street. This year's event was extra special because it was also the library's grand re-opening to show off our newly refurbished lobby. In addition, the Mary Lee Clark Award was presented to recognize a person, persons, organization, agency or entity that has significantly contributed to the goals, enhancement, promotion, success and continued growth of the library. According to Nan Fowler, the president of the Library Board of Directors, the library was the brainchild of Mary Lee Clark who convinced her husband, Cliff Clark, to give up space in his law office for the library. The recipient of this year's award was San Luis Obispo County District 3 Supervisor Adam Hill.

Volunteer Appreciation Banquet

The Grover Beach Community Library quite simply could not exist without our many volunteers, and the Volunteer Appreciation Banquet is held each summer in their honor. This year the event was held on Sunday, July 9, 2017, at 11:30 am at the Grover City Grange, 370 S. 13th Street, Grover Beach.


While every contribution is greatly appreciated, the library's Board of Directors uses this occasion to honor one volunteer librarian and one volunteer in general for their efforts over the past year. In 2017, Ruth Doermann was selected as Librarian of the Year, and Jessica Inglis was selected as Volunteer of the Year. Below, Ruth and Jessica receive their awards from Board President Nan Fowler.
