The better the library, the stronger the community.
The late Saul Zaentz, the acclaimed independent film producer who lived in Berkeley and adapted literary works for the screen believed in the power of books and story telling to transform lives. When he grew up, he gave back by committing significant funds to support the Berkeley Public Library. Listen to his story and consider joining us with your own generous gift. Who knows what future writer, scientist, artist, or filmmaker will find refuge at the Berkeley Public Library? Your donation can make the difference.
Gifts of every size are needed to help our library thrive and grow. If you can, please consider making a $1,000 or more sustaining gift. Donors at this level become members of the Rosa Shattuck Circle and receive early access to special events, and other benefits throughout the year.
