Save the Ocean Beach Library Rally

Save the Ocean Beach Library Rally

On Saturday, November 15, 2008 People’s Co-op closed the market for one hour from noon to 1 p.m. to support a rally protesting San Diego City Mayor, Jerry Sander’s plan to close 9 city libraries. Among the 9 chosen, is the Ocean Beach Branch Library, San Diego’s first and oldest city library.

The rally was well attended, but there is still much to do in order to prevent the closure. For more information you can click here and go directly to the O.B. Rag’s blog site where there are up to the minute news and action alerts; you can also get information on how to contact the mayor and your city council members to let them know that you are against the library closures. Together we can and do, make the difference!
