Message From Our Board President
On behalf of the Long Beach Public Library Foundation Board
of Directors, we thank you for visiting our website.
With your financial assistance, we have been able to sustain and support literacy programs that benefit the entire City of Long Beach. Your
donations make the following programs possible:
Centers, where all children can receive assisted bilingual
homework help, access the latest technology, data and research resources,
and where adults can learn to improve their language technology and job
where all third graders attending Long Beach schools are given
their own dictionary and taught how to use it,
Long Beach Reads One
Book, a citywide celebration of reading when everyone in Long
beach is invited to read the same book and enjoy a week-long series of
events centered around themes of the book.
These are exciting programs and we are fortunate to have them.
The Long Beach Public Library Foundation is very grateful for
your generosity and for your assistance in Promoting Literacy One Reader
at a Time.
Joseph F. Prevratil

If you have not already visited the newly constructed Mark Twain Library (1401
E. Anaheim Street, 90813), you have missed a rare gem in the City of Long Beach.
Make plans to do so soon. I think you will be suitably impressed!
