I always enjoy hearing about initiatives that are helping to nurture the
young people of California.
also appreciate your remarkable efforts to promote the role of our future
leaders in the important issues facing our state.
Your commitment to our youth is carrying forward the California State
Library’s proud legacy of enhancing education and enriching our communities.
thank you for your letter. California
relies on education leaders like you who care about the well-being and success
of our children.
week and the week before, my wife and I had the privilege of doing research for
our book in the California History room of the California State Library and we
wish to express our appreciation not simply for the facility, its holdings and
the excellence of the preservation, organization and arrangement but for the
incomparable quality of the staff.
Gonzalez and the several members of the staff could not have been more

needs and those of every other visitor whom we saw there.
We commend you and all concerned on the operation of this important
function of state government.
