The Veterans Resource Center at the MCFL King City Branch was
established through a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under
the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by
the State Librarian.
Staffed by volunteers, is dedicated to helping veterans and their families connect with
the benefits they have earned through their years of service and sacrifice.
Trained volunteers at each station provide assistance connecting veterans to resources
both in and outside of the Library. This includes access to
and pamphlets on various topics including:
- Transitioning from military to civilian life
- Finding jobs
- Surviving change
- Veterans’ benefits
- Managing post-traumatic stress disorders.
Computer and wi-fi access is also available at all MCFL locations.
