A Celebration of Community: LA County's Cultural Resource Centers

A talk by Daniel Hernandez, Katrina Lacerna, Rose Mitchell and Kascia Samel
LA County Library, LA County Library, LA County Library & LA County Library

LA County Library is one of the largest library systems in the country, with 86 branches spanning over 3,000 square miles and within that vast system, there live four gems. LA County Library is home to four Cultural Resource Centers educating, archiving, and serving communities of color. Daniel Hernandez, Chicano Resource Center Librarian, Kascia Samel, American Indian Resource Center Librarian, Katrina Lacerna, Asian Pacific Resource Center Librarian, and Rose Mitchell, Black Resource Center Librarian, from LA County Library will share stories of joy from customers and the critical role that the Resource Centers play in our system at large, but also for the specific communities that they serve during times of both civil unrest and in times of community celebration of history, the present, and the future. In this talk, you will learn about the programs, services, and resources that the LA County Library Resource Centers have to offer and you will leave feeling inspired and empowered to continue similar work in your library.
