San Manuel Library Chairperson

Watch for a brand new look at the San Manuel Library thanks to BHP. Juanita Hyde, BHP’s community superintendent, presented the library with a gift of $700 to paint the exterior of the library. The library will be painted gray with white trim and black accents. The library board was very concerned about saving the silhouette mural painted on the front of the building showing the mine and plant. They consider this an important piece of San Manuel history thus a frame will be built around the silhouette area and a protective coat will be applied over the mural to help save it. BHP has been very generous to the library over the years and we hope the community realizes how helpful their kindness has been in helping this library to function and offer their services to the people in San Manuel and surrounding area. Thank you BHP!
