Library of California News

Senator Dede Alpert, author of the bill which created the Library of California (LoC), received California Association of Non-Profit’s (CAN’s) 2003 highest award for "Elected Officials," in honor of Alpert as one of LoC's "Library Champions" as well as her extensive service to California's non-profits.

LoC Board member Jane Lowenthal, whose non-profit, Working Solutions, Inc., nominated the senator said, "Senator Alpert is a true ‘Library Champion.’ Her authorship of the Library of California and her foresight to forge collaborations honors us all and provides a greater opportunity for the work of library professionals to enrich the literacy skills, library benefits, and reading pleasure to California's 34 million residents."

In her nomination of Senator Alpert, Lowenthal said that Alpert’s work “is… pragmatic. And in a time of economic shortfall - full of vision!” Lowenthal also said that because of Alpert’s leadership “California's libraries [have seen] exceptional results.”
