The San Mateo Rotary Clubs Select Barb Mackraz of the Rotary Club of Woodside/Portola Valley as District 5150’s December Rotarian of the Month!

Barb Mackraz exemplifies an outstanding Rotarian. Barb joined the Woodside/Portola Valley two years ago after being a guest speaker at the club where she shared her goal of bringing libraries to Morocco. She had recently visited the country and became aware of the fact that there were no libraries. She had established one library when she came to our club. Today there are more than thirty. These libraries are especially impactful for the girls in the country who, without access to books, have a difficult time moving out of poverty. Barb is a true visionary. She sees important needs, forms alliances, and finds solutions quickly. We are proud to have her in our club.
