Please take a moment to look at the Beale Library Event Calendar, there are great events planned for Kern County youth and their families!

Learn to Save on Your Energy Bill

The Kern County Library, in collaboration with Energy Upgrade California, a statewide energy management initiative and program of the California Public Utilities Commission, is offering information that will help local residents and small businesses discover ways to save energy and money. In seven separate events at in-town libraries, customers will discover how much energy it takes to use household appliances and the incentives and rebates available to upgrade pool pumps, HVAC systems, hot water heaters, install windows, and participate in other energy-saving endeavors. Representatives from Upgrade Energy California will help Kern residents join others in saving money and helping California reach its 2020 state-wide energy goals.
