On May 4th, the Santa Ana Public Library and the Santa Ana Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Agency will launch its Third Annual "State Of My Heart" exhibit. This year’s theme will focus on traditional dresses and rebozos (shawls) from the various states of Mexico.

On Saturday, October 20, 2012, Santa Ana held dedications for three new parks along the Santa Ana River Trail. Visitors joined Parks Recreation and Community Services officials for ribbon cutting ceremonies to mark the addition of 1.7+ acres in the city.

Youth from Jerome TeenSpace attended the May 11th License and Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Checkpoint to show support for Santa Ana Police Department’s (SAPD) efforts to identify impaired drivers. The youth provided SAPD officers with banners illustrating their appreciation for keeping the community safe.

The Santa Ana Public Library is known for its book collections and story times, but what many people don’t know is that it is also the site of life skills and job training for at-risk Santa Ana teens. Over the summer the library received a WIA or Workforce Investment Act grant to fund a pilot project called “Seeds to Trees Digital Media Academy.”
