Generous donations to the California State Library Foundation made possible the purchase of a portfolio of Bob Kolbrener original black and white photographs. A sample of Kolbrener's exquisite landscapes, featuring Yosemite vistas, may be seen on display in the rotunda of the California State Library Building at 900 N. Street, Sacramento. Foundation Executive Director Gary Kurutz said of Kolbrener's work:

"I have studied photographs of the great valley for close to forty years
and these are the finest I have ever seen."
