The Carmel Valley Library will get a new look for its 20th anniversary celebration in July. Thanks to fundraising efforts by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library, work is expected to begin in the next couple of weeks on a fresh coat of paint over the black streaks that currently stain the exterior.
The Friends received support from San Diego City Council President pro-tem Sherri Lightner, who contributed $26,000 from her Community Projects, Programs and Services budget.
Del Mar Highlands Town Center also contributed $3,000 toward the repainting.
“Not only are they our close neighbors, but they also play a very important role in supporting literacy and education for the community,” said Elizabeth Schreiber, vice president and general manager of Del Mar Highlands Town Center. “We are honored to work with them.”
The library’s 20th anniversary celebration is planned for July 27.
