Solana Beach Library holds holiday card collection for U.S. military

For the eighth year in a row, the American Red Cross is collecting holiday cards and distributing them at veteran hospitals and military installations around the world. Through Dec. 2, cards are available at the Solana Beach Library for people to write a message to military members who may be without their families this holiday season. Because the Solana Beach Library is also a school library, the best times to access the lower and upper parking lots are between 8-11 a.m. and 1-2 p.m., or after 3:30 p.m. The library is at 157 Stevens Ave., Solana Beach; call 858-755-1404.
