California Library Leader Memory Project

The California Library Leader Memory Project is an LSTA-funded initiative of Infopeople and the California State Library that seeks to create a body of work that will stand as the collective professional memory of the California library profession from the mid-20th century through the first decade of the 21st century. It aims to be a resource for new/young library professionals and those aspiring to leadership in the library profession. Through oral histories, retired California library leaders tell their stories, sharing their experiences and their collective professional memories with new generations of librarians.
Anne Cain served as County Librarian of Contra Costa County Library from 1989 to 2010. Anne worked with communities in planning 12 new library buildings and operated three joint-use libraries in partnership with a middle school, high school and community college. Contra Costa Library earned a national reputation for innovative services using technology as outreach. Under her leadership libraries were created in the county’s two juvenile halls.
