The Kern County Library is dedicated to providing a safe and welcoming environment for families and children. To make the Library an enjoyable place and to encourage a love of books, reading, and learning, the Library offers designated children’s and teen areas, programs, and services.
The Library encourages children and their parents/guardians to use its resources, cultivate interactions with other children, and be inspired by the possibilities of learning, all in a safe space specifically designed for that exploration. The Library promotes the idea that children should use their voices, minds, and their bodies to express themselves in active reading, movement, and play.
