  • Wow, it’s already June and the weather is getting hot. Come see the library staff at the Old Time County Fair. This event is on June 13th from 10am to 4pm at Ridgeway Park. The first 200 children each get a free book. There will be games, food and lots of fun. Don’t miss out on all of the fun.
  • Summer Reading comes “booming” into town in June. The program starts with a HUGE kick-off featuring Japanese Taiko Drumming on June 17th at 10:30 am at the State Theater in Red Bluff. Come learn about Taiko’s historical journey from Japan to the United States through powerful drumming. This event is free of charge and open to the public. Don’t miss it. For more information call the Red Bluff Library at 527-0607.
  • As we roll into summer so does Pete the Cat in his groovy reading shoes. Don’t miss our amazing Summer Reading Program which begins on June 15th. The Los Molinos branch has their programs on Mondays, Corning Branch is on Tuesdays, and the Red Bluff Branch will be on Wednesdays. All programs begin at 10:00 am. Don’t miss out on all of the crafts, special guests, and fun. Not to mention all of the great books you can read over the summer. Hope to see you there.
