The El Cerrito Library Foundation is pleased to announce a new member of our Board of Directors, Ms. Golddie Williams. We believe that her years of service as the founder and CEO of a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion consulting firm as well as her many years of community service with various organizations in West Contra Costa County, will improve our ability to advocate for a new, modern library for El Cerrito and to support our current library.
