The California State Library has a statewide grant which is setting up Veterans Resource Centers in public libraries. The goals are to provide veteran benefits and local service information to veterans and family members and links to other organizations serving veterans, to increase veteran benefit claims and to increase the number of veterans registered with CalVet so that they stay informed about veterans. The grant program will expand in FY 14/15, and this webinar will explain how libraries can become involved in the grant and/or set up services for veterans on their own. This webinar was presented by Jacquie Brinkley, Karen Bosch Cobb, and John “Buzz” Kraft from July 16, 2014.
