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:20121113-145140.jpg
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!

I will leave you today with just a small sampling of my family’s latest check outs from the Fresno library that we’ve loved, or are currently enjoying:

I am the owner and only person that runs FresnoFamily.com. I created this site in 2001 for myself to fill a need, and it's continued to be useful to our community so I continue to develop and grow it! It is a labor of love. I am a homeschooling, work-at-home mama of 2 teens, living in Fresno with her goofy husband and 4 much-adored kitties, just trying to survive the heat in the summers and find things to do with our family that doesn't take too much of our very stretched pocketbook. And sharing info and ideas here with you. I also run several other online homeschooling businesses, including HomeschoolRealm.com and TinasLearningAdventures.com, and run the largest and most active local homeschool Facebook group, the Fresno Area Homeschoolers group, among other online groups.
