For this year's Coastside Gives Day of Giving, Friends of the Half Moon Bay Library set a goal of raising $10,000 to support the enhancement of the Children's Garden at the Half Moon Bay Library.
We are proud to announce that the results on Coastside Gives Day far exceeded our goal, raising over $16,000!
We were thrilled to see such a generous outpouring of support from the community. These funds will be used to provide additional shading and furniture to ensure that the library can continue to provide a safe, welcoming outdoor place to gather throughout the year.
Our heartfelt thanks to all who supported this campaign. We look forward to seeing you all at the library soon.
