The La Crescenta Public Library has anywhere from 300 to 500 new Korean books, and there are still a large number of Korean movies to be unloaded.
Victoria Guagliardo, the Community Library Manager for the La Crescenta branch, with the assistance of Korean translator, Hyugwon Kim, presented the new materials to many of the Korean La Crescenta residents last Saturday. The State Library of California's Korean Global Language Grant made it possible for the La Crescenta library to receive the shipment of books and movies.
Guagliardo honored three volunteers who, she said, "Have over the past 12 years given many hours of their time and input to help develop the Korean Language collection here at La Crescenta library." Crescenta Valley Town Council Vice President Jaleen Lunt gave Elizabeth Pak, Hyo S. Kwon and Amie Hwang awards sent in by County Supervisor Michael Antonovich.
