We will have volunteers around town. We are very close to making our goal to get enough signatures to qualify for the ballot or have the Supervisors adopt the ordinance. Come on out and be part of the excitement.
We are collecting signatures so an initiative can be placed on the ballot to fund our Kern County Libraries. It is a 1/8 cent sales tax but it will cost the average family less than $15 per year. It is a small tax that will transform the services our libraries can provide.
With this dedicated funding source, all Kern County libraries can be open at least 5 days per week, have upgraded technology including WIFI, provide after-school and expanded summer programs for children, increase job training, and other vital resources and services Kern County needs.
