About the National Steinbeck Center

Drawing from the works of John Steinbeck, The National Steinbeck Center is dedicated to Steinbeck’s creative legacy: to participate, to inspire, to educate, and to understand one another.

Mask Mandate: March 28th

Please note that the National Steinbeck Center is within a building owned by California State Monterey Bay (CSUMB). As such, we are required to follow the safety regulations dictated by the CSUMB President and risk management department.

They have declared that mask’s must be worn inside the building until at least May 19, 2022.

We understand that this is contrary to both Federal and State mandates so we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This policy is not due our National Steinbeck Center staff, so we ask that you understand our position.

We ask that you follow the request to wear mask’s inside.

Thank you,

Steve Emerson
