As regular Hotline readers may recall, in 2008, board member Ed Gerjuoy’s loving wife of 68 years, Jacqueline, passed away. She was an avid gardener who loved nature and our city’s parks. Along with the installation of a memorial bench and plaques in honor of her memory in Oakland’s renovated Schenley Plaza, Ed also made a gift to the Carnegie Library, to be used in purchasing books for a collection in his wife’s memory. The Jacqueline Reid Gerjuoy Nature and Environment Resources collection, which is housed in the main branch in Oakland, may be of interest to GASPers and others who take an interest in nature. As of late 2011, the collection comprised over 500 titles, with more on the way in 2012. Click here for the list of titles.
