We did it! 

This past Tuesday night, the Long Beach City Council voted unanimously to name the new North Long Beach Neighborhood Library, the "Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library!"

This is a historic day for Long Beach. By honoring First Lady Michelle Obama, we have our first library named after a person of color and demonstrated that we are a forward thinking city that values the opinions of our youth, acknowledges contemporary heroes, and embraces diversity. 

Thanks to all who participated in the process.  View more pictures from the council meeting here.
