Santa Maria Public Library receives grant award
BY JOE PAYNE
The Santa Maria Public Library has received a Cal Humanities California Reads grant, including more than $7,000 for its project, “What it is like to go to War?” which will run September through November at the library.
California Reads is an organization that promotes the discussion of thought-provoking books and invites Californians from all walks of life to participate in groups related to or hosted by libraries, schools, colleges, bookstores, and other community institutions. The Santa Maria Public Library was awarded the grant for the program that will include two discussion panels, one of which will feature current servicemen and -women from Vandenberg Air Force Base and another involving local marines discussing their experiences in war. Other aspects of the programs include a book discussion and screenings of classic and contemporary films about veterans and war experiences.
More information about California Reads, which is a Cal Humanities program, is available at calhum.org. More information about the “What it is like to go to War?” program is available at 925-0994, Ext. 828. or email@example.com.
