Lobby Book Sale

There is a large selection of books for sale, daily, inside the library. Hardbacks, paperbacks, and children's books are priced at 50 cents each, and magazines are priced at 25 cents each. The selection changes daily, so come in often to see what's been newly added!

Santa Visits ELF Club

The biggest hit of the recent ELF club meeting was a visit from none other than Santa Claus himself, according to Pat Habeck, Library Literacy Programs Manager. The ELF (Early Learning for Families) book club is sponsored monthly by the Tulare County Library Literacy Center, and the December 4 sessions hosted 100 children ages 0-5 and their parents. Volunteers Carolyn Royall and Virginia Lloyd Butterfield read Gingerbread Friends to the children, while demonstrating early literacy skills for the parents. Even the little gingerbread man puppet enjoyed reading the book and singing the songs. The ELF attendees made a craft designed by Sharon Sanderson and sang songs and played games under the watchful eye of Alicia McCleod. Santa gave each child a free book – including Lucia Moreno, the newest ELF member!
