Beale Memorial Library 25th Anniversary

Kern County Library Foundation
Meet Me at the Beale… Again!
Thursday, April 3, 2014 5-7p.m.

701 Truxtun Avenue, Bakersfield, CA

The Kern County Library Foundation (KCLF) is joining with the Friends of the Library and library staff to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the opening of the Beale Memorial Library. In 1986 a public/private partnership between the County of Kern and the KCLF was formed with the initial objective to raise funds to furnish and enhance the library.

After twenty-five years, our downtown library is in great need of a technology update and some refurbishing. We are planning an anniversary celebration for April 3, 2014, and are hoping to showcase new programs, enhanced meeting spaces, and upgraded equipment that will continue to offer innovative and universal access for our diverse communities. Therefore, we are asking for the first time since the library opened for you to consider making a donation to the Kern County Library Foundation in honor of this important anniversary and to plan on attending the anniversary celebration, “Meet Me at the Beale… Again” on April 3, 2014.

We look forward to seeing you on April 3, 2014 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM to celebrate the anniversary and to show and thank you for what your generosity has accomplished.
