Stockton’s libraries and recreation services will see a boost through Measure M. Measure M, a special tax that will fund library and recreation services in Stockton, was overwhelmingly approved by 76% of voters during our last election. You’ll recognize its benefits through the Strong Communities Initiative!

What does this mean for Stockton residents?

In a public forum held on Saturday, April 1 dozens of residents voiced their requests and hopes for how this funding should be applied within these departments. City Councilmembers also gave their direction to Community Services Director John Alita. Read more about the guidelines discussed and approved here.

An immediate improvement is the long-awaited reopening of Fair Oaks Library at 2730 E. Main Street on May 10th from 3-6pm! Funds to support the opening of this library was approved by City Council in 2016 however its sustainability was still in question. With Measure M funding, Fair Oaks Library can remain open! It has been a dream of mine for several years to see the Fair Oaks Library reopened beginning with this blog post when I first had that “big idea” to last year’s post urging residents to support Measure M. Mark your calendars to attend the grand re-opening celebration at Fair Oaks Library!

In 2017, Fair Oaks Library reopened! Although this advertisement does say that Stribley Library closes April 8th, that too was later reopened. It reopened as a micro-library in 2019. Read more about the Grand Opening of Stribley Micro Library.

Just in time for Summer, we can be excited about improvements to our community recreation centers, such as increased staff and extended hours! You’ll want to favorite this link to keep watch of Stockton’s Community Services updates.
