Why Sponsor?

Sponsorship is an opportunity to show your organization’s commitment to an essential community service and supports the role of authors and literature in making our public library system exceptional. Sponsorship increases your exposure and visibility as a philanthropic leader in the wider community.

Over the years, thanks to the authors, sponsors and donors who support this signature fundraising event, the Foundation has helped build a new wing of Berkeley’s Central library, equip Berkeley’s remarkable tool library, and create four beautiful, award winning new branch libraries. We also fund expansions for early childhood reading projects, the popular “library on wheels,” and innovations such as Cornerstones of Science for all ages. Our current efforts focus on essential upgrades to the historic Central library – bringing new flexibility, technology, and ease-of-use to this bustling hub of our town.
