Research & Reference - Reader's Services


Library Services

  • Kern County Library Staff Suggests - Monthly recommendations from KCL staff for kids, teens, and adults. Leave your own comments and recommendations on the Staff Suggests Blog.

  • Online Book Club - Join our Online Book Clubs and start reading books in your email. Each day we’ll send you a 5-minute portion of a book. By the end of the week, you’ll have read 2-3 chapters. If you’d like to finish a book, stop by the library and pick up a copy. Every week we feature new books. Sign up today and start reading tomorrow.
