Jill Bogard, president of the Friends of Cleveland Park Library, announced the creation of the Barbara A. Gauntt Fund, to honor the leadership and contribution of the former manager of the local branch of DC Public Library.
The fund was created by the DC Public Library Foundation in consultation with the Gauntt Family.
In a letter to the community, Bogard wrote: “Barbara believed in the power of the library to change lives for the better, and contributed to the DC Public Library Foundation herself. Your contribution to the Barbara A. Gauntt Fund will both honor Barbara and support public libraries throughout the city.”
