OC REFORMA has been active in Orange County since 1979, promoting and advocating Library Services for the growing Latino and Spanish speaking communities across the county for over thirty years. Although numerous workshops and activities have taken place over the past three decades, many of the photos of these past events have yet to be scanned and made available online. Fortunately, Anthony Arroyo (Pima Community College Library) has put together a wonderful online photo album of one specific workshop that took place in 1988, offering the newest members a brief glimpse of some of the rich history of OC REFORMA’s community involvement with advocacy, education, and outreach. Please access the following link below to take a trip back in history to view some classic photos from OC REFORMA’s illustrious past.
