BOOKS ARE US…and more!

Four loyal supporters of the Berkeley Public Library Foundation www.bplf.org attended a special luncheon yesterday at SF’s elegant Boulevard Restaurant www.boulevardrestaurant.com (Photo from left):  Barbara Manierre, Rachelle Owen, Toni Garrett, Julie Nachtwey.  Hostess was columnist Leah Garchik, SF CHRONICLE. Renowned Chef Nancy Oakes greeted the women as they dined on crispy squash blossoms and Chioggia Beet Ravioli. Boulevard is located at 1 Embarcadero, in the historic Audiffred Building built in 1889.  It’s one of the city’s oldest remaining buildings from early San Francisco, City landmark #7.

 

The luncheon was offered as an auction item at the Foundation’s annual Authors Dinner held in early February. BPLF has raised more than $3.5m to renovate Berkeley’s main library and four branches. The current goal is to create a “Teen Center” in the main library building. The Berkeley Public Library offers Berkeley residents more than 300 viable programs and services such as how to read, use a computer, fill out a job application, make a budget and much, much more.
