 A HISTORY OF SARATOGA'S LIBRARIES
by Willys Peck
 

A history and a work of art

This book was the brainchild of James Givens who, at the time plans were formulating for the expansion of the Saratoga Community Library, wanted the library's rich history to be recorded and preserved. Givens, on behalf of the Friends of the Saratoga Libraries, asked Mr. Willys Peck, journalist, attorney, author and local historian, to write the book.

Givens then engaged The Arts and Crafts Press of Berkeley (now Olalla, Washington) to design and print the book. The artwork, including the beautiful title page, decorations and motifs are by Yoshiko Yamamoto. Photographs include two of the Village Library taken by Ansel Adams, friend of the building's architect, Eldridge (Ted) Spencer. The binding is cloth on board, with leather spine, plus printed endpapers.

This slip-cased, numbered, limited edition is signed by the author, and is available exclusively at the Friends' Book-Go-Round. The price is $50.
