Celebrating 20 Years of LBPL's Family Learning Centers


In 1999, the Long Beach Public Library with support from donations to the Long Beach Public Library Foundation opened the first Family Learning Center (FLC) at the Burnett Neighborhood Library.

This center was the first of several Family Learning Centers at the Long Beach Public Libraries where students of all ages can obtain free one-on-one homework help and job seekers can receive support with résumé building and job searches.

Donations still support the tens of thousands of homework help and job search support sessions at the Family Learning Centers every year. Learn how you can support at
