Reviews for Long Beach Public Library Foundation
The Long Beach Public Library Foundation provides supplementary financial support for the LB Public Library in the areas of literacy, education, and arts and cultural programming that would have been eliminated because of the local city budget crisis. Every day caring and knowledgeable staff continue to help individuals reach their personal aspirations in a safe and caring environment. I have seen the children's librarians and homework helpers individually working with a child to help improve their reading skills and success in school. It is so heartwarming to see the look on a child's face when they realize "I can do it!" Wile it is easy to assume that all children have parents that can help them with reading and homework assignments in the home, every home has a computer with internet access, and Google can provide answers to any question, it is not true. I care about the Long Beach community and believe its libraries provide valuable services and programs for everyone!
