SAN MARCOS – The Rotary Club of San Marcos installed a mini library in Victory Gardens Park at 300 Roosevelt Street. The library contains a variety of books, including bilingual children’s books. A second mini library will be installed next to the Southside Community Center on Guadalupe Street.
The libraries are part of a project by Rotary District 5840 to construct 100 such book boxes in underserved areas in South Central Texas. San Marcos Rotary paid for most of the materials, with donations of some materials by Divided Sky Roofing and Exteriors. Rotarian Larry Hanson constructed them. Julie Hollar of the Youth Service Bureau sought donations of appropriate reading material to go into them. Rotary plans to build more in San Marcos in the near future.
Rotarians present the installation of mini library #1 included Larry Hanson, Julie Hollar, Katie Deolloz, Bruce Smith, Lance Winter, Jimmy Cobb, Fay Cliett Gillham.
