About the scholarship: The Karen Gersten-Sternheim Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually by the Southern California Chapter to provide assistance to a student who seeks a career in special librarianship. The award was established in May of 1993 at a special board meeting called by chapter President John Shea shortly after Karen’s death. The first scholarship was awarded in 1996. Karen, a librarian in the UCLA Management Library, was an active supporter of student development, dedicating much of her career to the success of library school students. The Southern California Chapter has committed to sustaining her legacy of service and support of students through this scholarship.Venue: Golden Road Brewing is located at 5410 W San Fernando Rd.Los Angeles, CA 90039.
