The Riverside County Library System has received a Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) Grant to establish a Veterans Resource Center, a resource dedicated to helping veterans and their families. There are two center locations available to veterans, the Mead Valley Library and the Palm Desert Library.
The Center provides assistance to veterans and their families in two ways:
(1) It provides books, DVDs, and pamphlets on topics such as: transitioning from military to civilian life, finding jobs, surviving change, guides to veterans benefits, managing post-traumatic stress disorders and more.
(2) It provides trained volunteers ready to connect veterans and their families to benefits and resources. The trained volunteers consist of practicing and retired professionals, many of whom are veterans themselves or have worked with veterans in the past.
For more information, veterans and their families may call 951-943-4727 or drop by at the Veterans Resource Center at the Mead Valley Library.
