Book, Toy, and Resource Library

CCRC's libraries offer an amazing place to play, explore, discover and learn - all for free! Parents, children, child care providers and students are invited to visit any of our four locations and talk to a child development professional or just to have fun for an hour or two.

Things to know about the library:

  • Check out up to 10 high quality, age appropriate resources for 30 days at a time.
  • We are open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and Fridays by reservation only.
  • Our libraries are located in Chatsworth, Palmdale, San Bernardino, and Victorville.
  • Books and age appropriate toys for infants through school age are available.
  • We also have books for adults on child development, parenting, curriculum, etc.
  • Butcher paper, die cuts, and laminating are free to everyone who visits the library.
  • Join us for weekly story time and art activity every Wednesday - space is limited and reservations are required!

Every month we will bring you an activity from our library. This month's activity - Balloon Ping Pong!

Ping pong is fun. But with limited space and potentially breakable items in the home, it’s not always a practical activity for kids. That’s why balloon ping pong is awesome.

All you’ll need is:

  • A balloon
  • Two large paper plates
  • Two popsicle sticks, chopsticks, unsharpened pencils or plastic spoons
  • Tape

All you’ll have to do is:

  • Tape one stick/pencil/spoon to the back of one of the paper plates.
  • Tape the other stick/pencil/spoon to the back of the second plate.
  • Blow up the balloon.
  • Start the game!
