Friends of BUSD Libraries

Welcome to the Friends of BUSD Libraries web page. We are a committed cluster of folks who believe that school libraries are an important component of every student's intellectual, emotional and cultural development. We know that strong school libraries correlate to higher student achievement. 

        We support the ongoing evolution of the library program of the Berkeley Unified School District to responsively meet our students' needs, and we advise the Planning and Oversight (P&O) Committee of the Berkeley Schools Excellence Project (BSEP) about the library program. We invite you to join us.

   Here is our calendar of meetings . As we don't meet every month, some months are blank, so you will need to scroll through the months to see the dates. For the 2016-17 school year, the meeting dates have not yet been set. When they are, clicking on the meeting itself will bring up the details of where the meeting is to be held. The links in the Navigation side bar will also contain the dates.
