AT DALY CITY LIBRARY FUNDRAISER


Daly City – Lois Levine, co-author of The New Elegant But Easy Cookbook, will be the featured guest speaker at the Friends of the Daly City Library’s third annual luncheon fundraiser on Saturday, September 20th.

The San Carlos resident will discuss her adventures while creating the cookbook. An ardent supporter of public libraries, Levine recently completed two terms as president of the Friends of the San Carlos Library. She will be available after the presentation to autograph copies of her recently published paperback, which can be purchased at the event for $12 each.

“Daly City’s library system, which consists of the main Serramonte Library at Gellert Park and three branch facilities, has had the good fortune to have dedicated and enthusiastic community support. In these tough economic times, the success of this year’s event will have an even greater impact. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the purchase of items on the library’s ‘wish list’, which includes DVDs, more books and support for our auxiliary programs,” Library Director Carol Simmons elaborated.

The luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Elks Lodge, 920 Stonegate Drive (off Hillside Blvd.), in South San Francisco. To obtain a luncheon ticket (at $25 each), contact the Friends of the Daly City Library at (650) 755-9567, or via email at dclibraryfriends@comcast.net . Information about the luncheon and reservation forms are also available at the Library’s website: www.dalycitylibrary.org .
