- Some sad community news to pass along that Linda Brooks-Burton, former
manager of the Bayview public library, passed away last week.
Linda was the Southeast District Manager for the San Francisco Public
Library. She oversaw six branches in the district including the Bayview and
Visitacion Valley branches. She worked for the public library for 30 years
and was a manager at the Bayview branch for close to 15 years. She served
for three years as a parent liaison to the board of Whitney Young Child
Development Center and then for seven more years as secretary to the board.
Ms. Burton is the mother of three children ages 21, 20 and 13, each of whom
attended Whitney Young Child Development Center (now FACES SF) as young
The Friends of the SFPL <https://act.friendssfpl.org/bayviewbricks> are
continuing their fundraising program, selling bricks from the old Anna E.
Waden library, with future donations being made in Linda's memory.
Condolences go out to Linda's family, friends, coworkers, and those in the
community who knew her.
