"I've always been proud to work for the San Diego County Library, even before we were chosen by Gale and the Library Journal as '2012 Library of the Year,'" Library Technician Jana Beck says. "I love that families on tight budgets can read or watch movies absolutely free!"

What's the biggest event event at the Imperial Beach Branch? The Imperial Beach Boulevard Boo family carnival. There's music, prizes and the annual costume contest. When asked what she liked best, one brave girl shouted, "The Haunted House was cool, I saw Cassandra there!" Branch Manager June Engel is quick to add that "this event is made possible through the partnership of so many local organizations; the level of collaboration truly represents the spirit of Imperial Beach."
