Big Bear Lake Library





It’s an Anniversary Gala for the Big Bear Lake Library, a celebration of the 100 Years that it has served the community. Everyone is invited to join in, on the festivities Saturday afternoon September 26, at the Big Bear Lake Library. Gala hosts, the Friends of the Big Bear Lake Library and the Adult Read-To-Learn Literacy Coalition extend an invitation to the many friends who’ve benefited from the Library’s bookshelves and various other services it has offered 

Meet San Bernardino County Librarian, assigned to the Big Bear Lake Branch Library, Jessica Deckert. Retired Librarian Pamela Heiman will be present as well at the celebration.  Heiman worked as librarian with San Bernardino County in Yucapia for six years before moving to the library in Big Bear Lake, where she served for nineteen years, retiring in 2013. She recalls moving the library to the present Garstin Street location in 1991. 

There will be several recognitions presented by 33rd District Assemblyman Jay Obernolte, San Bernardino County 3rd District James Ramos, City of Big Bear Lake Mayor Dave Caretto and City Manager of Big Bear Lake Jeff Mathieu and Big Bear Lake City Councilman Randy Putz.   

A ‘must see-to-believe it’ Trivia Contest will definitely be a fun attraction. As part of the 100 Books For 100 Years Campaign, books may be purchased and donated to the Big Bear Lake Library, in your honor or someone the purchaser wants like to honor.

The Friends of the Big Bear Lake Library and the Adult Read-To-Learn Literacy Coalition are looking forward to greeting the public on Saturday afternoon. The  Big Bear Lake Library is located in Big Bear lake at 41930 Garstin Drive.  Extra parking is available across the street from the Library.
