July 1, 2012 (Lemon Grove) – A new public library is now under construction in Lemon Grove at the corner of School Lane and Lincoln, thanks to Prop W bond funds.   
 
On June 27, Friends of the Lemon Grove Library presented the county library with a check for $60,000 to purchase the “First Day Collection for the new library. During the ceremony, the group also gave $5,000 from the City of Lemon Grove raised by Rosemary Putnam.
 
Helen M. Ofield, President of the Lemon Grove Historical Society, described Putnam as the “den mother to the whole library effort”, noting that Putnam asked the Lemon Grove Council for library funds earlier this year. 
 
The $5,000 donation will fund the Family Literary Collection, providing books for impoverished families that do not have books
 at home.
