Tehachapi loves its Library
July 6, 2019
If we face facts, we have to admit that Tehachapi is still a small town. But with all the support from the community, our Library is No. 4 in all of Kern County in terms of circulation. And we're really close to being No. 3 (we've got our eyes on you Ridgecrest).
This is due to the tremendous support that we've seen from individuals (buying books, donations and volunteering) and local businesses (donations of arts and craft supplies, food for events, prizes for the Summer Reading Challenge, etc.)
Now for those of you looking for a way to support what the Library does that involves eating, drinking, listening to music and basically having a good time, the Friends of the Library has you covered. This year the Tehachapi Friends of the Library was selected as one of the charities to receive money from our local Cheers to Charity, Tehachapi Wine, Craft Beer and Food Festival on Aug. 10 at Aviator Park.
And one way that the Friends of the Library helps them help us, is to sell tickets for the event. It's not as if we're competitive or anything (see paragraph one above) but to directly help the Library we want to make it easy for you to buy your tickets from the Friends of the Library. So if you're planning to go to Cheers to Charity and haven't bought your tickets yet, here's what you can do:
1. Stop by the Library any Wednesday in July from 11:30 to 1:30 and buy your tickets at the special table that will be set up on the first floor.
2. If that doesn't work for you, then contact the Friends of the Library by email at [email protected] or call or text (661) 750-2818. Arrangements will be made to fit your schedule.
General Admission tickets are $70 and VIP tickets are $125. We accept cash, check and credit/debit cards, and there are never service fees when you buy from the Friends group!
