The Portola Branch of the Plumas County Library has been a part of the community for many years, providing a place to learn and explore through the world of books for locals of all ages. Photo by Lauren Westmoreland li Lauren Westmoreland Staff Writer Iwestmoreland@plumasnews.com The Plumas County Library's Portola Branch recently received a generous donation from the Graeagle Lions Club for the purchase of new books. Lions members John O'Donnell and Mike Moore attended a recent Friends of the Portola Library meeting to present the goals of the club, which include providing vision related services, highway cleanup, scholarships and much more. They also expressed their deep appreciation for the Portola Library Branch and all of the many services provided to the community, from Internet usage to book lending. For this reason, and also due to the fact the state of the county's reduced budget has not permitted funding for restoration of Friday hours for the Portola Branch or the for the purchase of new books, the Lions Club presented the Library with a check for $350 with the goal of purchasing new reading material for adults and children. Although patrons from other branches of the library may request the books, the home library for these books will be Portola Branch Library for two years, and then they may join the rotation throughout Plumas County libraries.

From our Superintendent Terry Oestreich: "I am happy to report to you that last night the PUSD Governing Board approved the appointment of Melissa Lea] as our new Principal of C. Roy Carmichael. Melissa joins our team after complimenting the Long Valley Charter School as the curriculum, instruction and assessment coordinator and most recently in the role of assistant director, Prior to that time, Melissa served in the role of elementary instructional coach for Plumas Unified School District and as a teacher at C. Roy Carmichael. During that time she completed her administrative internship under Principal Bruce Williams. Melissa shared with us, "For me, this opportunity is a dream come true. I am a local girl who was educated in Portola schools from kindergarten to graduation. The love, support, and dedication of teachers like Mrs. Wilson, Ms. Ross, Mr. Martinez, and Mr. Valle are the reason I started rfiy career as a teacher 14 years ago in San Jose, California." One of Melissa's greatest strengths is that she already has a relationship with students, staff, parents and the community and she shared that her passions are curriculum and instruction. Melissa has committed to beginning her role as principal to listen, be available, visible and strive for excellent customer service. I have had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Leal on School Site Council and know that we will work closely and happily to transition seamlessly for our community and especially our students and staff. I am very excited that I will be handing off CRC to someone I respect and enjoy working with immensely! What a gift this is as we navigate changes." : ) Mr. O Calendar: 12/16-Holiday Dress-Up Day 12/16-Holiday Shopping Spree 12/19-1/2-Winter Break
