View Park Library will soon be named after one of the community’s most distinguished residents: the late bestselling novelist and advocate for the mentally ill, Bebe Moore Campbell.

The county Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the change Tuesday, on a motion by Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.

Ms. Campbell authored four New York Times bestsellers: Brothers and Sisters, Singing in the Come Back Choir, What You Owe Me, and 72 Hour Hold.  She also wrote the Los Angeles Times bestseller and New York Times notable book of the year, Your Blues Ain’t Like Mine, for which she won an Image Award for literature from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
