The Beale Memorial Library Will Be Temporarily 

Closed For a Month Due to a Recarpeting Project 

The Beale Memorial Library will be temporarily closed for a month as the General Services Department works to replace inadequate areas of carpeting throughout the building. The project will require the Library to be closed from Monday, August 9 through Monday, September 6, and will reopen with normal operating of hours of 12-6pm on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.

Beale customers will be given extended loan periods during this closure. Curbside services will still be available for customers at Beale Memorial Library, as well as accessing services through the closure on our website at KernLibrary.org. Grab-n-go lunches for children ages 2-18 will continue at the Beale Memorial Library through the end of August. Additionally, curbside and indoor services are available for Bakersfield residents at our Southwest and Rathbun branches. Virtually, the Kern County Library's

eLibrary is open 24/7. You can get your reads anytime when you get them online; all you need is your Kern County Library card!
