As a constant book buyer I have yet to get a library card in Kern County. I know that sounds bad, but even worse is that I just made my first visit to the library here. Yes, 7 years of residence here and I made my first visit. I have to say, I was so sadly disappointed by the books and the staff there in the library.
First off the children's section is boring and plain. There is no cute reading area, not even a clear distinction between adult and children's books. There is nothing to get the kids excited about reading. The books are dirty, ripped and in sad shape. Clearly they are no replaced often or maybe at all.
I wandered around looking for some books for Emily to take home and it was only a sweet little child maybe 7 years old that showed me where to go. She was so sweet and even picked out some books for her to read.
