Meet the New Casa de Oro Library Branch Manager

Devin McClain-Tran has been named the new Casa de Oro Library Branch Manager. Although no library branches in the county are open, the majority of employees are working from home, completing professional development training webinars and other projects.

All branch book drops are closed, and the due date for any previously checked-out material is April 30. No late fees will be assessed. The branch is getting a good cleaning while closed by the custodial staff, who are still on the job. County Officials will decide when the library will reopen.

Looking for Friends? CDO Library is too.

As a new, non-profit organization, Friends of the Casa de Oro Library needs new members. The organization’s main goal is to support the library’s many wonderful programs for children and adults. Your membership will help with that and give us library-loving citizens who can help inform the community of all that the library offers.

New Bus Benches and Bins

After several months of interagency meetings and discussion, there are new, covered, solar-lighted bus benches on Campo Road. An evaluation of bench placements ensures accessibility for those with physical challenges, and the covers should make any waiting time more comfortable during hot or inclement weather. 

Larger and more attractive trash receptacles were placed by the County, and Edco Disposal has made a commitment to empty them regularly. Since the monthly first Saturday community clean-ups won’t resume until the isolation order is lifted, let’s all make sure any trash you see is stashed in these new containers.

A special thank you goes out to Vince and Wannetta Sherrod for taking the lead on these projects.
