The next time you come through the main doors of the Peninsula Center Library look to your left and see if you notice the big difference. The pamphlet and magazine racks are gone and in their place are modern panels honoring The Peninsula Friends of the Library donors. On Sunday, September 21, 2014 an evening reception was held for the grand unveiling of the new Donor Recognition Wall. Friends President Marion Martelli and President of the Board Trustees Jim Moore greeted the guests, and Library Director Kathy Gould gave a report on the library. “The dedication celebration for the new Donor Wall marked the long-awaited completion of a PFL dream project – to name all our wonderful donors, past, present and those who will continue the tradition of generously supporting PVLD, in one beautifully designed recognition piece, ” Friends President Martelli said.
