Guest 1. Reese Foxen shares her journey with library books from her grandmother’s lending library at a local grocery store to employee and volunteer. Guest 2. Deborah Doyle also has bonded to libraries and was instrumental in the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library campaign to build the new library and create a protected source of funding for the renovation and modernization of the branches in San Francisco. Both Reese and Deborah share the imporance of supporting the Measure Y sales tax measure to raise funds for the library to cover the rising expenses. The old measure structure limited the library funding to a small % of the property taxes, which decreased with The Great Recession of 2007 that is still burdening our economy. This Measure Y benefits especially the children and those without wifi for internet access to read books, to touch them, to know they are there and there are more.
Guest 3. Dr. Loi Medvin talks of how the Water Protectors at Standing Rock spurred he to produce the Sunday Benefit on Sunday in Sebastopol at the Grange in Sonoma County. Gurest 4. Anika Salguerro shares how she was pulled to visit Standing Rock and join the Water Protectors for one week, from where she recently came. It was raining the day of the interview on Monday, and we saw it as a blessing and reminder of the sacredness and preciousness of water that can be drunk be part of ou body and our children’s and children’s children’s bodies to 7 generations and more. The family friendly event will include tables for non-profits and silent auction items, for which you can contact Dr. Loi Medvin at (707) 695-7888.
