California Gold: The Sacramento Valley Chapter of REFORMA is committed to improving library and information services to the Sacramento Valley’s Spanish-speaking and Latino community. Our goals in support of this mission are:
- Development of Spanish-language and Latino-oriented library collections and programming
- Recruitment of bilingual, multicultural library personnel
- Promotion of public awareness of libraries and librarianship among Latinos
- Advocacy on behalf of the information needs of the Latino community
- Liaison to other professional organizations (CLA, EMIERT, SALALM for example)
- Providing training, education for our members and those interested in serving Latinos and Spanish Speakers
In addition to the California Gold Chapter, there are other REFORMA chapters in the state of California and the United States. These chapters function autonomously, working through their area library systems and state library associations to achieve local objectives.
We invite interested persons of all backgrounds and communities to join us in our efforts.
