New Frazier Park Library To Open in October

Kern County Library’s new Frazier Park branch has been slated to open Saturday, October 22.

According to Director of Libraries Diane Duquette, major signage is being installed this week, while other items such as equipment tables will not arrive until the week prior to opening.

“The current library facility on Mt. Pinos Way will be closed for at least two weeks before the opening,” Duquette said, for transfer of materials to the new facility and to other branches in the county. She said that materials out on loan would have their return dates adjusted to accommodate the closure.

There will be a brief opening ceremony at 10 a.m. on the steps of the new branch, expected to last about 30 minutes. Kern County Supervisor Ray Watson and other county officials will attend.

Frazier Park’s new library will be managed by librarian Teresa Thompson, who worked for 30 years at the Mt. Shasta branch of the Siskiyou County Library system and more recently at the Weed branch in Siskiyou County.

The new Frazier Park branch will be open to the public after the ceremony Saturday morning. Visitors will be able to check out books and other materials.
