We are delighted to announce that library champion and Authors Dinner event chair
Linda Schacht Gage will be given the
Fred and Pat Cody Award at the Foundation's annual Authors Dinner on February 11, 2017. The award is presented to those who embody the spirit of Fred and Pat Cody, careful custodians of Berkeley's literary heritage. Linda's passionate commitment to the library is unparalleled. She's chaired our Authors Dinner for each of its 15 years and been our fearless fundraiser for more than 20 years. Linda has helped raise millions of dollars transforming Berkeley's libraries for future generations.
One way we are honoring Linda is to collect donations in her name to help support her favorite current library project - the new Teen Room at the historic Central Library. We hope you will join us with a special donation. Gifts of any size are welcome and encouraged.
