Next time you are at the Peninsula Center Library, we invite you to visit the Local History Center and meet Stella Castillo, our Resident Archivist. Stella will be with us until the end of October. As part of a year long residency, Stella has already done rotations with the Autry Museum, Cal Poly Pomona and Loyola Marymount University. Stella earned her MLIS with a specialization in archival studies from UCLA in 2015. While at UCLA, she worked at the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library as a library assistant, created and implemented a paper preservation project in the conservation lab at the Fowler Museum, interned at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and worked on a large photo archive project at the National Chavez Center.
Stella will be helping the Local History Center process key collections that document the Peninsula's history.
