The 10,500 square foot Donald Bruce Kaufman Brentwood Branch Library

Glorya Kaufman wanted to pay tribute to her late husband who was a voracious reader. The, then 3,000 square foot Brentwood Library was all but obsolete, and Glorya Kaufman considered that the timing was perfect.

She initiated a presentation of a challenge grant to the Brentwood community. Over 2,000 people in the Brentwood community helped by donating funds for the new library, and thus the 10,500 square footDonald Bruce Kaufman Brentwood Branch Library came to fruition.
