Because of the library closure due to the Covid pandemic, the Walnut Creek Library Foundation has had to cancel its annual Authors Gala in both 2020 and 2021. The Gala is not only a festive gathering of Walnut Creek’s civic and business leaders and culture connoisseurs, it’s also the mainstay of the Foundation’s drive to raise the funds needed to support the many programs and activities that our two Walnut Creek libraries provide to patrons all year long.

We’re very pleased to report that a great many Gala sponsors demonstrated the true depth of their support for our libraries by agreeing to continue their sponsorships this year even when we had to cancel the Gala. These generous donors are listed below, with our thanks. Their commitment enables our libraries to thrive, even in the most challenging times.   

Thank You to Our Sponsors!
