It's time to let our librarians know how much we appreciate all that they do in Long Beach. The Carnegie Corporation is sponsoring an effort to recognize the contributions of librarians. See announcement below and let's go Long Beach and nominate our librarians for this prestigious honor and prize.
Never one to miss a chance to teach about our local history, I want to point out that Long Beach was given a $34,000 grant in 1908 from the Andrew Carnegie to build our library. This city recognized early on the importance of having a public library and trained librarians! Let's keep that tradition alive.
