Veterans Connect @ the Library

Welcome to the Veterans Resource Center!

Through the generous support of the California State Library, the Camarena Memorial Library has received a Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) Grant to establish a Veterans Resource Center. A resource dedicated to helping Veterans and their families.  Veterans and their families can meet with trained volunteers, which are Veterans themselves, and get connected to information and resources regarding health, education, employment, housing, and other benefits that they may be entitled to.
