As funding drops librarian taps volunteers, his own bank account


As government funding drops, Redwood City library head taps volunteers, his own bank account

Genesy — whose compensation ranks in the top 3 percent of city employees, according to state data — has written his share of personal checks, too. Over eight years, he has donated more than $50,000 to Project READ. He said he also donates as much as he can to the Library Foundation or “anything that has to do with kids and learning and getting our families that need our help, some help.”
