Library Systems: Corona Public Library

I've mentioned before (numerous times) that our family is a fan of Library systems. California has some wonderful libraries and I truly encourage homeschooling families to take full advantage of them.

Today I'm focusing on the CORONA PUBLIC LIBRARY. As with any library system you do not have to have a card to go and take advantage of many of their resources. To obtain an Adult Library card you must be 18. Their children's card policy is as follows:

A children’s card is issued to the parent or legal guardian of the child who will use that card. The parent or legal guardian is responsible for all materials borrowed and for any fines or fees owed on cards of children up to the age of 18.

Online you can also access their CHILDREN'S ROOM., they also have a Teen Advisory Council, Poetry Bashes and an Anime/Manga Club. You can also find links for Homework Help as well as Colleges and Jobs.

Want to recycle your Electronic Equipment safely and responsibly? The Library is partnering with Dollar Self Storage to raise money to buy new computers. If you have an old computer, printer, or any other Electronic Equipment you don't use any more, take it to Dollar Self Storage at 1065 E Third Street in Corona. They will recycle the items and write a check to the Library Foundation. The goal is to use these funds to buy up to 20 new workstations for all of our patrons to use.

The Corona Public Library is located at 650 S. Main Street, Corona, California 92882 and the main number is (951) 736-2381.
