Want to be a firefighter? Check out the San Bernardino fire station open house


The public — especially children who might be interested in careers as firefighters and their families — are invited to an open house at the San Bernardino fire station at 200 East 3rd St on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Those who attend can tour the station and see how firefighters live and work, interact with the firefighters, and see how they utilize their vehicles for different types of emergency situations. Sparky the mascot will be available for photos.

Share this post and photos from the event on social media using the hashtag #Vision4Safety.

‘Help Us Soar’ at County Libraries

The San Bernardino County Library invites residents to ‘Help Us Soar’ as librarians strive to meet the goal of checking out six million items during this fiscal year.

The San Bernardino County Library system has increased circulation to over five and a half million items in the previous years, and now wants to meet a new milestone of circulating six million items by June 30. The Library’s 650,000 card holders are encouraged to ‘Help Us Soar’ in the following ways:

  • Sign up for a library card during Library Card Sign Up Month. In September, new library card owners will get a limited edition Disney Incredibles sticker while supplies last. Sign up for a traditional library card online or in person at a local County library, or sign up for an eContent card online.
  • Obtain a traditional library card. A library card issued in person from a branch gives the owner access to physical materials, such as books, DVDs, CDs, and magazines at all 32 branch libraries, as well as access to branch public computers and printers. Traditional library card holders will also have access to all electronic resources available to eContent card holders.
  • Get an eContent card on the County Library website The eContent card acquired from the County Library website gives the owner access to electronic materials such as eBooks, audiobooks, music, and digital magazines. This is a great option for residents of California who are unable to visit a physical library location.
  • Download digital resources such as OverDrive and Cloud Library for eBooks and audiobooks, Freegal music, and digital magazines.

The ‘Help Us Soar’ campaign is another opportunity to celebrate and support the Countywide Vision’s literacy campaign, Vision2Read.  Reading at grade level by the third grade is one of the greatest predictors of children’s success in school, their likelihood of going to college, and their future earning potential. The San Bernardino County Library system facilitates programs and events at all branch libraries to encourage children to check out books to read.

The San Bernardino County Library System is a dynamic network of 32 branch libraries that serves a diverse population over a vast geographic area. The County library system strives to provide equal access to information, technology, programs, and services for all people who call San Bernardino County home.

The library plays a key role in the achievement of the Countywide Vision by contributing to educational, cultural, and historical development of our County community.
