Universal Studios - Historic Postcard - Gift by Gary Fredburg to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley (click on image to enlarge)
When we incorporated The Museum of the San Fernando Valley in 2005, one of our first acts was to create an annual budget to support the library of the historical museum at Los Angeles Valley College. Our goal was to systematically build that library to become a major resource of San Fernando Valley history and culture. Fred Berk was chosen as the official Librarian of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.
Within days after accepting the role as The Museum's Librarian, Fred Berk began a careful assessment of the college musuem's collection and the search for supportive materials.
In February of this year, The Museum of the San Fernando Valley became independent of the Valley College historical museum and set out on our quest to bring about a great Museum of history and culture for the whole of the Valley. Fred Berk has continued her service to The Museum and our goal of a significant Library.
On behalf of the entire Museum Community, THANKS FRED! Acquiring a space for your Library is a top priority!
The San Fernando Valley, in the Heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
