The RBHS Friends of The Library Are Making A Real Difference


The RBHS Friends of The Library is continually made possible and able to impact our students because of the continued support of parents, educators, and students.

New Books

To keep our library collection current with issues relevant to today’s students and with a diverse sample of reading materials, the FOL continually needs funds to feed these resources into the constantly changing library environment.

Staffing Needs

California’s budget cuts left our Blue Ribbon school library under-staffed. The FOL seeks to provide a higher staff-to-student ratio to ensure all students have adequate guidance.

Digital Book Collection

The RBHS Friends of the Library needs funds to add new titles to the library ebook/audiobook collection.

Friends of Library Memberships

The primary goal of the Rancho Bernardo High School Friends of the Library (FOL) is to raise money for much needed staffing, books, ebooks and technology.  We work closely with our school's Teacher Librarian to support the growing needs of the Library.
