FALLBROOK – Jerri Patchett, the New Library Building Task Force chair for the Fallbrook Friends of the Library, was the featured speaker at a recent weekly Thursday luncheon meeting of the Rotary Club.
Patchett’s subject was the state of the new Fallbrook Library, now under construction on Mission between Alvarado and Fig Streets.
Patchett revealed to the attending Rotarians the photographs, drawings, artists renderings and building plans, along with an elaborate power point presentation, which supported her claim that the new Fallbrook Library will be the finest, most-state-of-the-art library in the state upon completion.
Artist/Printmaker Dixon Fish, husband of Fallbrook Rotarian Connie Fish, is creating a “Fallbrook History Mural” using 20 large prints to depict Fallbrook’s rich history within the library. Fallbrook Rotarian Dr. Jim Helms is photographing the progress of the library under construction, and many of his pictures were included in Patchett’s presentation.
Prior to questions, Patchett concluded her remarks by detailing the look, furnishings and equipment of the Teen Room as a finished showplace for the audience, inasmuch as the Fallbrook Rotarians have pledged $100,000 to complete and furnish that portion of the library.
