About Veterans Connect @ The Library


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 and the Veterans Resource Centers are a partnership between the California State Library, local libraries, and the California Department of Veteran Affairs. They are made possible in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technologies Act.
