*This building is currently without water and therefore has no fire suppressant system. After discussion and direction from the fire marshal, with the safety of customers in mind, this facility will remain closed until the building's water tank is replaced.

No late fees or fines will be assessed for Bear Mountain customers. As an added service during this difficult period, the Community Bookmobile will be in the parking lot of the Mountain Valley Community Church (30598 E. Kings Canyon Rd.)from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM every Wednesday from July 6 through September 28, 2016 to provide the community library services. Holds may be picked up by the community at the Reedley Branch Library. If you would like to pick up your items at the Bookmobile or a different location, please log into your ValleyCat account or call 600-READ (7323), ext. 4. Please have your library card number ready. The Children's programming scheduled for 1:00 PM on June 28 will be held at the Mountain Valley Community Church as well.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time for our community. We extend a special thanks to all of the community supporters and especially the Mountain Valley Community Church for helping us during this period.*
