Whether you visit us online or in person, we want to make your library experience a positive one. Our goal is to ensure customers always receive outstanding service online, in any one of our 24 libraries or two bookmobiles. We consider the Library a dynamic environment, where we strive to support active learning experiences for all ages, and during the summer months is summer reading! The Summer Reading Challenge is on of the Library’s signature annual events, and we don’t take it lightly. Library staff work 6 to 7 months ahead of our June 1st Kickoff every year to plan, develop, create, and coordinate summer events & activities. This summer, I am proud to announce that the Kern County Library is offering the most events we have ever offered.
We have over 1,800 FREE summer reading programs, events, and learning opportunities around Kern County in our 24 branches and at select bookmobile stops. Now thing about that: 24 branches, 2 bookmobiles, and offering over 1,800 FREE events & activities for kids, teens, and adults this June & July. We have something going on every day around the county.
