The Sam Ricardo San Bernardino County Branch Library is open. While its services are somewhat limited, it is possible to borrow books.
On the Internet, reached at: sbclib.org, VISION 2 Succeed, has information about events in San Bernardino County District. Many organizations as well as individuals are taking part without cost to participants. While some of this data appears out-of-date, there's much to learn, much that is never out-of-date: youth programs, the Workforce Development Board, (WDB) and Economics Development Agency (EDA). The partnership includes employers, educators, and businesses.
San Bernardino County’s VISION 2 Succeed is inspired by the innovation of leaders like Supervisor Robert Lovingood at State of Education events.
Your Sam Ricardo Branch Library, 7863 Central Ave., just north of Fifth Street, is open and welcoming. Of course, county guidelines require masks and social distancing, but don’t let these requirements stop you from using this beautiful building's resources. It’s particularly important as schools are still in a quandary about protecting children and teachers during the coronavirus pandemic. Your library is always a source for education as well as the pleasures of reading. Just as you will, I will be glad when we can feel more relaxed and do away with this social distancing and the masks. These inconveniences will not keep me away from our library. It is still a lovely place to read, rest and enjoy, with a knowledgable, welcoming staff. Will I see you at the library? I hope so.
