Description

Foster youth and their caregivers from surrounding areas are invited to attend an event to learn about the programs Altadena library has for youth, view the display the children and young adult librarians have organized to highlight National Foster Care Month, and to get a brief walk through and explanation of the computer area and other resources. Most important, the County Foster Youth Library Card Program will be explained and youth can apply and receive their cards on the spot. The card program is available in libraries throughout Los Angeles County.

A very brief welcome will include very brief words from Los Angeles County Fifth District Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich's Foster Care Deputy, Helen Berberian, MS; Steve Sturm, DCFS Education Division; and local attorney and Pasadena Journal Publisher, Joe Hopkins.

Light refreshments will be served.
