2nd Tuesday Book Club Discusses Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larson 

01/12/16 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Monica Barrette, 760-839-4836

 

Escondido, CA - Escondido Public Library invites adult readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on February 9, at 6:00 p.m. in the Turrentine Room. This month’s selection is Isaac’s Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History by Erik Larson.  

Larson’s non-fiction narrative captures the drama of the deadliest natural disaster in American history. Set in 1900 and told largely from the perspective of Isaac Cline, the senior U.S. Weather Bureau official in Galveston at the time, Larson expertly captures the power of the storm itself and the often catastrophic consequences of the intersection of natural force and human choice.

The 2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on March 8, 2016 with The Red Lily Crown: A Novel of Medici Florence by Elizabeth Loupas. The selection for April 12, 2016 is The Bees by Laline Paull.

Escondido Public Library’s Holiday Food for Fines Benefits Locals in Need 

01/11/16 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Joanna Axelrod, 760-839-4330

 

Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library’s annual Holiday Food for Fines program proved once again to be very successful. This popular program provides Library patrons with the opportunity to clear up to $20.00 in fines from their account.  During the collection drive, which ran from Monday, November 30 through Thursday, December 31, 2015, the Library accumulated 50 crates of food weighing an estimated 1,500 pounds. The Library gladly accepted both fine and non-fine related food donations. Proceeds from the drive were donated to Interfaith Community Services www.interfaithservices.org/ in Escondido which will distribute the food to families in need throughout the North County area.

Interfaith’s Communications Coordinator Lauren Holt commented, “Interfaith Community Services is continually thankful to receive support from a diverse array of community groups in North County, such as the Escondido Public Library. Thanks to the incredible donations resulting from their Food for Fines program, the Escondido Public Library will help feed the nearly 16,000 low-income community members in need that Interfaith serves each year.  With 1 in 4 children in San Diego County at-risk for hunger, along with an estimated 9,000 homeless residents living without permanent shelter, the basic human need for food has never been greater. Interfaith Community Services thanks the Escondido Public Library for their commitment to our local community and hopes to continue our partnership for the benefit of those in need of a hand up.”

Library programs, events, and services are free and open to the public. For more information about Food for Fines, contact Principal Librarian Joanna Axelrod at jaxelrod@escondido.org or 760-839-4330.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Cecy Rayphole, 760-839-4289

 

Escondido, CA - Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner), Escondido Public Library’s Bilingual Book Discussion Group, will meet on Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. in the Turrentine Room.

Copies of the book are available for check out and may be reserved in the Library catalog at library.escondido.org.

Every morning Rachel takes the same commuter train, passes the same suburban homes, and stops at a signal that allows her to see the same couple routinely having breakfast on their deck. Then one day, during her trip, she sees something shocking.  Suddenly, her life takes a turn from the mundane to the thrilling, yet horrifying. Rachel alerts the police and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Was it a mistake to get involved?

Rincón Literario will meet next month, on Saturday, February 27, 2016 to discuss Isabel Allende’s new novel, El amante japonés/The Japanese Lover.

Rincón Literario is made possible by generous support from Friends of the Escondido Public Library. This program is free and open to the public.

Mayflower Dog Park Reopens 

12/16/15 Categories: City of Escondido

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE       DATE: December 16, 2015                                                                      

CONTACT: Bud Oliveira, Deputy Director of Public Works, 760-839-4665

 

Mayflower Dog Park Reopens for Use

 

The Mayflower Dog Park has reopened for use as of December 16, 2015. The recent closure was a precautionary action as a result of a park user reporting their dog contracted parvovirus after a visit to the park. City staff contacted the County of San Diego's Department of Environmental Health, County Veterinarian, Dr. Nikos Gurfield, for information about parvovirus and what steps should be taken to protect dogs visiting the park. Dr. Gurfield explained the most effective way to protect a dog from contracting the virus is to have all dogs properly vaccinated against parvovirus, as well as other diseases such as distemper and rabies, before visiting the park. Dr. Gurfield added that it was very difficult to determine where a dog actually contracted the virus. City officials, after consulting with Dr. Gurfield, have decided that sterilizing the park grounds would not be a long term solution because the virus could be introduced to the park by a sick dog that was shedding parvovirus. Dr. Gurfield recommended that pet owners only bring healthy, fully vaccinated dogs to the park.
