  • Hi Everyone, 

    My name is Daniel Ng at the Betty Rodriguez Library and we just opened up a Veterans Connect Resource Center at our branch.  I wanted to share a video of our volunteers that we are using as a recruiting tool to try and help get more volunteers.

  • Beale Memorial Library, of the Kern County Library, in Bakersfield, had its first-ever Veterans Scanning Party on Wednesday.

  • Josh Dhanens of the Kern County Veterans Services Department spoke at the Beale Memorial Library auditorium on Veterans benefits; 9 people showed up!

  • Hi David, please post picture of your Center!

    The grant requirement is that there be regular open hours, but many libraries also take appointments.  Libraries have set up various methods for taking appointments, and maybe a few will share here!

    Congratulations on opening in just a few days!

  • Beaumont Library District recently received a $1,200 “World War I and America” grant to host events that will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the nation’s entry into the war in 1917.

    Beaumont Library is one of just 55 organizations in 25 states to receive funding through the Library of America during the first of two rounds of applications.

    In partnership with its Veterans Resource Center, the Library is planning to offer scholar-moderated discussions next year for those who served in more recent conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan to bring their experiences to bear on historical events and texts. 

    For more details, read the full story in this Patch article:

  • Hi everyone--

    I hope you all had a terrific holiday weekend. I wanted to let you know that we have added another module (Module 6) to our training for staff and volunteers. This was prepared by CalVet and can used for initial training or as a “brush up”.

    You can find this on the training page for volunteers at: http://calibrariesforveterans.org/librarian/train_volunteers.html

  • Hey all! I posted some awesome flyer samples in the "Programming" forum. Check them out!

  • On our website on the Veterans Page we have posted the link to the CalVet page which provides detailed instructions on the CA Veteran Driver License and ID. http://calibrariesforveterans.org/veterans.html. The link to the CalVet page would be a good one to add to your local pages since it is the newest program.
  • For those of you who received a free laptop at the conference, I hope you found in the box the paperwork for a full license certificate for Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Business Version. Has anyone been able to install it or "trade" it for a Office 2016? Advice is appreciated so that all can share! Karen Bosch Cobb
