Library Wins Library Association AwardThe California Library Association (CLA) awarded the CLA PRExcellence Award for Less than $5 million budget to the Escondido Public Library for its program, Boos & Booze.The goal of this event was to provide a fun, spooky, informative experience to adult patrons, ages 21+. By fostering an interest in the history of Escondido (especially the site of the current Library building), showcasing the local beer culture that is so prevalent in San Diego County, and appealing to the 25-35-year-old age group (which is the lowest demographic of Library users at Escondido Public Library), Escondido caught the attention of CLA and ultimately the PRExcellence Award for their creativity to organize a community even that brought this hard to reach population to our library.

Community members were able to learn more about the project and talk to pipeline safety experts on what construction will entail as well as the state-of-the-art safety features the new pipeline will include. SDG&E is working with the City of Escondido on the construction and traffic permits and conducting outreach to the Escondido community, including schools, to provide more information.
