Dancing with Our Stars...

The fifth annual Atascadero: Dancing with Our Stars was a huge success, netting $67,000 for our new library. Rolfe Nelson and Leigh Ormonde took home the top prize. Second place went to Mike and Peggy Zappas, and third place went to John Donovan with dance instructor Sharon Davis and his daughters Emily and Meredith. The People's Choice Award went to Atascadero Police Chief Jerel Haley. Other star dancers competing were Angela Cisneros, Col. Bill Hatch, Heather Moreno, and Nicholas Mattson. Photos...

During National Library Week, April 13 to 19, the Friends of the Library thanked the staff of our library for their helpfulness, their expertise and their niceness. On behalf of FOL, Grenda Ernst presented librarian Gordon with a card of thanks and a gift card from a local coffee house for each staff member.
