First 5 California Children and Family Commission Section

CSL Services to First 5 Children & Families Commission

When, in 1998, California voters passed the California Children and Families Act, they showed their commitment to provide the best possible start in life for California’s youngest children. In response to that directive, the First 5 California Children and Families Commission is creating programs, services and projects to promote strong families, healthy children and early childhood learning and development.

The California State Library is also committed to promoting education and knowledge, and as part of an interagency contract between First 5 California and the State Library, the California State Library is actively supporting the information needs of the First 5 California Children and Families Commission in its efforts to provide a comprehensive, integrated system of early childhood development services to all children in California from the ages 0-5. The California State Library is committed to providing the First 5 California staff with access to an extensive collection of resources, highly skilled staff providing enhanced reference services, positive customer service and 21st century technology.
