2009 - The Year of Valley History - SALUTES OUR FILIPINO COMMUNITY

Filipino American Bookstore
One of the largest concentrations of Filipino-Americans is in the Panorama City area of the San Fernando Valley. The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is actively collecting artifacts and information about this important population.
Periodically, to serve the interests of our Valley Filipinos, this blog will feature stories and information about this significant group - an essential part of our Valley heritage.
The Filipino American Library was founded on the 13th of October 1985 by Helen Agcaoili Summers Brown, affectionately known as "Auntie". In 2009, the F.A.L. is the largest, as well as being the very first, Filipino focused library in the United States. The facility has over 6,000 titles. A division of the Filipino American Heritage Institute, the library shares many of the same goals as The Museum of the San Fernando Valley; to promote the history, culture and professional achievements of the Filipino community.
