Monday, Feb. 16, 2009 | Supporters of a new Central Library are discouraged by the continuing failure of library “Friends” to produce the needed dollars to even keep the State grant which has been generously extended once again. Any accountability here? I hope reporter Rani Gupta will reveal the closely-held list of anonymous donors that Mayor Jerry Sanders keeps citing and that the State now requires from San Diego if the state grant is to be kept alive.

The recent shift in library “friends” focus from legitimate fund-raising to cutting deals with the impoverished public school district to pay the freight for a “schoobrary” on an earthquake fault is not a good sign.
