The Library recognizes its unique position and responsibility to build community and cultivate opportunities for Kern County residents to participate fully in our society as an informed citizenry, by connecting people, resources, ideas, information, and technology.
The goal of the Library is to provide an environment where all visitors are welcome.
County residents expect each of our libraries to be welcoming, clean, and safe for selecting materials, reading, researching, studying, writing, and attending programs and meetings. Behavioral expectations protect the rights and safety of visitors, volunteers, and staff, as well as preserve and protect Library materials, equipment, facilities, and grounds.
