Founded in 1985, the Friends of the Ramona Library are dedicated to making our local public library the best it can be. Their hard work has gained the Friends a reputation among San Diego County library staff as one of the most enthusiastic and effective Friends groups in the county system.
The Friends serve the book-loving community through their bookstore, “The Open Book” , which raises money for special children’s programs and to buy new books, videotapes, and audiotapes for the library’s collection. The Open Book has a special book sale the third Saturday of every month and is open daily, except Sunday, from 10 am to 4 pm. The Friends also recruit volunteers to work with the library staff shelving books, reading to children, working with the literacy program as well as other tasks.
Membership in the Friends is open to all. The organization is led by a board of directors elected from the general membership. The board will meet every other month starting in February 2015 in the Community Room of the Library which is located at the back of the library by the parking lot on the third Wednesday of that month at 1 PM. The Friends of the Ramona Library are registered as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization under the ID number 33-020-7592. All contributions are tax deductible.
