Long Beach Public Library Foundation

Welcome To Our Newest Board Member, Barbara Long

Barbara Long seeks out libraries, the key to developing creative and curious communities, every place she goes. She considers serving on the Long Beach Public Library Foundation Board of Directors to be a true honor. Barbara moved to Long Beach in 1986 but came to know her community better as a member of the Aquarium of the Pacific’s leadership team from 2000 to 2014. One of her first projects was overseeing the design and construction of Shark Lagoon. She has also served on local committees and several national and state museum organization boards and committees. Barbara’s favorite activities along with her husband, Bill Waterhouse, are walking their dogs throughout Belmont Shore and kayaking in Alamitos Bay.
