SEIU 721 Heroes: Melissa McCollum



SEIU 721 is celebrating National Library Week.

In this video, you'll meet LA County Community Librarian Melissa McCollum. Melissa works at the Lawndale Public Library, where she plans programs for people of all ages. But Melissa's not just a celebrity in her own library. Last year, the American Library Association, the New York Times and the Carnegie Foundation recognized Melissa's dedication and excellence with their annual I Love My Librarian Award.


Do you love your librarian? In a recent poll, 96% of Americans agreed that because public libraries provide free access to materials and resources, they play an important role in giving everyone a chance to succeed.  

So sit back and enjoy this video about one of LA County's finest. And when you're done, make sure you thank your favorite library worker this week for helping give people a chance to succeed!
