About the library

Opening its doors on October 19, 2019, this is the third Micro Library in the city of Stockton.

 

Located in the Van Buskirk Community Center, this petite space is home to books and movies, interactive technology, laptops for public use, and regular programs for all age groups! Van Buskirk Micro Library offers all the services of a full-size library in a convenient and community-based location for ease of access for the public.

 

Programs

We offer programs every day we are open! We have time for little ones to practice their reading, time for adults to try out their tech skills (with some assistance from our staff), and plenty of crafts, snacks, and fun for all ages.

 

Check out our events calendar to learn more about our current offerings.

 

Technology

We are happy to offer tons of high tech (and low tech) options for our library users. We offer MakerSpace materials ranging from a sewing machine to pipe cleaners, glue sticks to a kid-friendly robot, and a whole lot in-between. We also offer laptops for in-library use and friendly staff to assist our guests who are less familiar with technology.

 

Philosophy

The Van Buskirk Micro Library strives to follow the Stockton-San Joaquin County mission statement:

Building resilient communities by cultivating healthy bodies and curious minds.

We work toward this goal by working in and with our community through engaging programs, by making information and resources accessible to all, and through a constant dialogue with our patrons. 

 

This library was made possible through the Strong Communities Initiative.
