For several years, the Kern County Library provided the e-edition of The Bakersfield Californian on its website. In 2020, the Californian changed its e-edition platform to PressReader. Because PressReader does not have an option for libraries to subscribe to newspapers within a limited geographical area, access to The Bakersfield Californian is no longer available via the library.
