San Diego, California - Would you ever sport a mohawk to support the organization you work for? Five San Diego County Library members are offering to do just that.

The men of the Vista Library staff are putting their hair on the line for the branch's "Mohawks for a Million" campaign. The library is close to being the very first San Diego County Library branch to check out one million books, movies, and music CDs in one year.

"We were close to getting the million last year and close isn't good enough for us," said JP Baker, Teen Services Librarian.

If the community of Vista visits the library and checks out enough items to reach the one million mark before June 30 (the end of the fiscal year), five staff members will publicly shave their hair into mohawks at the library on Friday, July 11.

"We want our community to be well-informed and we hope this campaign will encourage people to read and bring attention to the great resources available through San Diego County Library," said Adult Services Librarian Kris Jorgenson.

Visit the Vista Branch at 700 Eucalyptus Avenue to check out some great books, movies and music CDs. For more information, contact the library at (760) 643-5100.
