February EHNC Youth & Education Committee Meeting: Raising “L”

We had our first proper EHNC Youth & Education Committee meeting tonight, with all four members in attendance. Our committee unanimously voted to recommend the endorsement of the March 8 City election’s ballot Measure L to the EHNC to help our City’s troubled library system by raising the amount allocated to the LAPL from 1.75 cents from every $100 of City property tax revenue to a whopping 3 cents. No big surprise – after all we were meeting in the Cahuenga Library.

John Harris, one of the EHNC’s Governing Board members and member of the Y&E committee, also shared with us his plans for a “A Clean Community is a Healthy Community” essay contest for the local schools. We also had Cathie Ehle, the Cahuenga Library’s Young Adult Section Librarian, join us to give us an update on what’s been going on at the Librarym, such as:

– Valentine Stories and Craft, Tuesday, February 8, 4-5 p.m.
– Free tutoring for high school and younger grades by Marshall High School students, every Saturday starting February 12, 12-2 p.m.
– Computer classes, every 2nd and 4th Thursdays, from 5-6 p.m.

Also, 20 students from Marshall High School and Immaculate Heart of Mary School come in on Tuesday and Thursdays to volunteer at the Library, doing everything from stacking to sorting to helping clean up the Library grounds.

There will also be the first-in-a-long-time Book Sale organized by the newly-resurrected Friends of the Cahuenga Library, planned in the near future.

Quite a lot of activity here at the Cahuenga Library!
