Thank you, Friends of the Berkeley Public Library!
Programming is made possible by the generous support of the the Friends of the Berkeley Public Library who volunteer tirelessly to support the Library, operating two brick and mortar book stores as well as selling books online. The majority of funds raised go towards programming for our patrons but the Friends also support library staff; for example, this year the Friends have offered scholarships to staff who would like to take coursework to support their careers at the library. Check out this recently published article written by the President of the Friends, Roz Hardy, which helps get out the good news about library services in 2022.
