Margaret Klausner Troke (pronounced Troh'-kee) served as the Director of the Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library from 1946 to 1974. She was a tireless advocate who fought often and successfully to improve and expand library services in the county and state. Among other things, she is credited with expanding the number of branch libraries and starting mobile library services. The Troke Branch Library was dedicated in her name on October 13, 1979.
