  1. as the only male member of the Watsonville Friends of the Library, i am quite proud of the library display. I urge our residents to visit the library , look at the exhibit and check out a book. Learning is a GOOD thing. No one ever died from reading too many books.
    We need to remember our African American leaders and heroes from our past and present. American rights and liberties belong to ALL OF US.
