The Kern County Library supports learning in all academic disciplines, but is especially mindful of how important STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) disciplines are right now in the educational community. Here at the Kern County Library, we have many different programs, materials, and experiences to help you and your children find those tools that will help them now and in the future.
