Meet New Book Sale Chair Peg Rosen

posted in: Meet a Friend

Born and raised in San Francisco, Peg has been an avid reader as long as she can remember. “I discovered the Friends semi-annual book sales after my family moved to Alameda in 1998. Attending and buying during those sales immediately became among my favorite weekend activities!” When she retired from twenty years of property management at Cushman & Wakefield, Peg stepped up big! She pitched in at Dewey’s and started sorting for the book and media sales. She went to the July soiree at Dragon Rouge where more than one hundred Friends volunteers were thanked by FAL board members, Mayor Spencer, the Library Director, and other local luminaries. That gala also honored decades of service by book sale originators and bid farewell to Gert and Peter Woods and Adair Jorgensen. Realizing that the sale needed guidance, Peg committed to chair this endeavor. “Enthusiastic help from other dedicated volunteers will ensure we have a strong team to organize and hold successful sales for years to come.”
