Janis Jones ensures library access for all

For Janis Jones, the lifelong pursuit of education and knowledge has been a pillar in her life. As a retired educator of 40 years, Janis’s love of learning, ideas, and reading was instilled from an early age at the encouragement of her parents. Armed with her trusty Library card, Janis has relied on the wide range of services at her local library for both research and entertainment over the years.

That’s why Janis named the Library Foundation as the beneficiary of her CalSTRS (CA State Teachers’ Retirement System) account. Designating the Library Foundation as a beneficiary ensures that the Library system will continue to remain accessible for all San Diegans in their pursuit of opportunities, as it has served Janis.

Library Foundation supporter and Carnegie Society member Janis Jones.

Thank you, Janis, for understanding and recognizing the intrinsic value of our public libraries to our communities with such a meaningful gift.
