Have you been to a Fresno County public library lately? If not, you need to get yourself out there! And pronto!
As a local homeschooler, we use our library system CONSTANTLY, let me tell you! I’m forever impressed by how much they have and how little of what I’m looking for they don’t have! Seriously, it’s not often that a book I’m looking for isn’t available somewhere in the system! And with their awesome online system, it’s super easy to just order online the books we are looking for, and have them sent to the library closest to us. Then when they come in, I get an email that they are ready for pick up! How can you not love that?
Here’s my youngest with his latest library read:
But the one thing that was missing was an iPhone app…NO MORE! Look for “FCPL mobile” in iTunes today! It’s free! And it’s awesome! You can order books, check on holds, renew checked out items, and even scan barcodes to look up things! I cannot say enough about this app!
Not only that, but the Fresno County Public Library also has an online system to pay your library fees online with a debit or credit card! They just make everything SO easy for you, and provide SOOOO many great resources, how can you not be using them?? Everyone in your family should have a library card and be using it regularly! It’s FREE!
Just wanted to give a heads up that I have received several emails recently from people trying to register with FresnoFamily.com that have run into problems doing so. I’ve looked into this and so far cannot figure out why they are having problems, as I was able to register a test account without problem, as was a friend of mine that tried as well. I will continue to poke around, but since I’ve not been able to recreate the problem, I’m not sure how to fix it.
If you are attempting to register an account on FresnoFamily.com and run into any problems, please do let me know as I can still set you up manually for an account and we can go from there.
I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused! And I hope to get to the bottom of this soon!

My kids were heartbroken. We went shopping this weekend and found the Professor Toy location in Clovis (the one that was near Toys R Us) GONE! My husband and I were sad. We LOVED that store! The variety of quality, educational toys was unsurpassed by any other local toy store (which would only be Toys R Us, or local department stores like Target & Walmart’s toy sections, since there are no other toy stores locally that *I* know of!) During Christmas time when Toys R Us was an absolute madhouse, Professor Toy was still a wonderfully relaxing and friendly place to shop! I even posted about it on FresnoFamily’s Facebook page the day before Christmas last year..they had toys that Toys R Us had run out of! And for good prices! AND THEY DID FREE WRAPPING!!!
Was it really gone??? Sooooo sad!
But….JOY OF JOYS! I just this moment opened up the July issue of Central CA Parent Mag and what did I see??? An ad telling me that Professor Toy has a NEW STORE!!! Its now located in the Villagio shopping center near Nordstrom Rack! (That’s River Park!) That’s even a little closer to us! They’re NOT GONE!!! My kids and I are doing the happy dance of joy!
So here’s what I want y’all to do: GET THEE OVER TO PROFESSOR TOY and support them by buying something! Because, seriously, our family cannot go through the stress of thinking they closed again!!
Just a heads up that I’ve recently condensed all the info from 2 menu bars into 1. All the same info is still there, it’s just been grouped differently to conserve space and look tidier. For example, I’ve put things like the pregnancy/birth and children’s activities sections under “parenting” now.
If you have any problem finding something, just drop me a comment here or email me, and I’ll help you find it.
