Vets Connect at the Corona Public Library
Welcome veteran and veteran families! Here you will find information on how the Corona Public Library can help you connect to different services in our community!
Vets Connect @ the Library – Mission
Veterans across the country are not accessing their benefits and/or services to their full potential. California public libraries, in partnership with CAL Vet, are working on connecting veterans and their families to local resources that provide them with the support they need to access these benefits.
The Corona Public Library Veterans Resource Center can be the connection vets need for help. Our skilled volunteers can help veterans with finding employment, accessing health benefits, buying a home, and other needs.
