Very proud of our director who is featured on the front page of today’s Daily Journal! Coming from Mexico at age 6, Ben has spent his career in public libraries. Ben says, “I have worked in public libraries ever since [college] mainly because of the positive impact that public libraries have on individuals, families and communities”. •

Thank you to everyone who came to our Latino Food Festival last night. It was such a success we hit capacity within 15 minutes!! An especially big thank you to our staff and the volunteer members of our Latino Cultural Advisory Committee. It is through their hard work and inventive ideas that we are able to put on such enjoyable programs. We’re always looking for new Committee members so send us a message if you’d like to join us in planning fun and exciting programs for and about the Latino population and experience.
