UC San Diego’s 10th annual “Dinner in the Library” was held Sept. 12, 2013 in the Geisel Library building. The evening’s festivities included a presentation by author, poet and critic Jay Parini on “Books That Changed America.” The Geisel Citation for Library Philanthropy was presented to John A. Berol, who as founding member of the University Librarian’s Advisory Board, provided consistent philanthropic support to the libraries, including the establishment of the June Waterous Berol Reading Lounge in the Biomedical Library building. Event proceeds will support UCSD libraries’ most pressing needs, including collections, resources and services.
