Our mission is to provide information services to the people of Coronado, CA.

Our Story

We are members of the Coronado Public Library and our goal is to create a model to share with other libraries to help them tackle local news deserts.

News deserts are becoming a challenge for communities around the US. Our goal is to provide a model to alleviate the pressures that news deserts are creating.

People trust libraries to be neutral in their handling of information and this is something that many communities could benefit from.
