New Anaheim Center

Our history in Orange County goes back to 1934 when we began providing library services through our Los Angeles headquarters. As demand for our assistance grew, we opened a small office in Garden Grove in 1967, and then moved to our current location in Anaheim in 1971. In those early days, we served 200 adult students each year and provided programs for blind children, including a preschool nursery class.

Today, our two Orange County centers help more than 7,000 children, adults, and seniors annually from Orange County, south Los Angeles County, and parts of Riverside County.

The time for a new Anaheim Center has come and we are thrilled to announce it will open its doors in 2019! The new center replaced the aging, structurally inadequate facility at 527 N. Dale Avenue. The new center will blend state-of-the-art technology with our hallmark personal touch services. It will meet the needs of blind or visually impaired children, adults, and seniors for decades to come.

Join us in kicking off our Centennial year with the Ribbon Cutting of our new Anaheim Center!
