Section 1 EventThe Public Libraries serve many of our School Library patrons. Creating a partnership with the Public Libraries may help them serve our patrons better, and allow us to offer more resources when we don’t have something available in our library.
CSLA Southern Region, Section 1, invites all CSLA members and library personnel to explore the possibilities of a partnership with the Public Library.
When: Wednesday, February 13 library lady.jpg
Time: 4pm-6pm
Where: Beale Memorial Library
701 Truxtun Avenue
Bakersfield, CA 93301
What: We will get a tour of the Beale Memorial Library, and then meet in a reserved room. Two public librarians, including the children’s librarian, will join us for great collaboration and discussion time. This should open some dialogue about how we can work together to support our mutual patrons, including the new Common Core State Standards.
RSVP: In order to provide enough drinks and snacks, I need to know how many people are coming. Please RSVP by February 11, to Sondra Keckley at
Cost: Free to CSLA members, $5 for non-members

If coming from Hwy 101 on Moorpark Rd., turn left at the light just past the high school. Instead of taking the next left into the main parking lot, head down the narrow road running between the school and the park. Take a left and park in the last lot in front of the baseball field. To find the library, walk back up the narrow road past the bus barn and cut through campus to the quad. The library is on the south side of the quad.
