California public libraries, in partnership with California Department of Veterans Affairs, are working to connect veterans and their families to benefits and services for which they are eligible. Libraries, in collaboration with community veteran service organizations, can positively impact the quality of life for veterans.
Veterans Connect @ the Library is gathering information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) to help veterans find the information and help they need in these difficult times. This content is being updated regularly.
You can make a difference - together we can activate California's veterans to take the 2020 Census to benefit their fellow veterans, families, and neighbors!
