Featured Grantee of the Month: Anaheim Public Library

From Arts Midwest

” Above and beyond isn’t enough to describe these grantees. Each month, we’ll be featuring a new interview with an organization from our NEA Big Read community. This month, the Anaheim Public Library talks equitable access, collaborative creativity, and the lasting relationships that are formed when a community reads together.The Anaheim Public Library is one of the oldest and most established libraries in Orange County, California. In its 116-year history, the library has grown dramatically from its humble beginnings in a candy store. Currently, Anaheim Public Library boasts a variety of services, including a Bookmobile and local history learning at the Heritage Center and Founders’ Park. Most recently, we have developed a joint-use library with the Anaheim Elementary School District and a book vending machine at the Anaheim Regional Transportation Center (ARTIC).”
