The San Bernardino County Library invites residents to boogie on over to the library during the month of September for the first ever Retro Month celebration. Retro Month will be celebrated throughout the month of September and occur in all San Bernardino County Library branches.  Every 30 items checked out earns a choice of a plush Kermit The Frog keychain, Tamagotchi, or Mario themed lanyard (while supplies last), as well as an opportunity drawing ticket for a chance to win the grand prize: a Classic Nintendo Gaming system.

Throughout the month, there are also special events and storytimes at various library locations.

These events are another opportunity to celebrate and support the Countywide Vision’s literacy campaign, Vision2Read.
