CCFB Program Development Group

California Center for the Book is guided by a program development group of library staff from across California. Group members are interested in community engagement and programming for adults and intergenerational groups. Members also advise and participate in producing meaningful professional development focused on programming and community partnerships. In typical times, the advisory council meets twice a year at libraries, alternating between different areas of the state.
