The Central Library at Shattuck & Kittredge will soon re-open amidst a great deal of Berkeley-style hoopla and enthusiasm.
Library staff are especially eager to share the renovated and restored “New Central” with the entire community.
As part of the re-opening gala planned for April 6, we'd like to honor any residents who may have attended the original opening of the Library on January 31, 1931. We're seeking your readers' help in locating those special library patrons. Could anyone who was there on that day, and who'd like to share the fun on April 6, please give me a call at the Berkeley Public Library at 510-649-3947?
