SANTA CLARITA — Some library services will resume next week in Valencia, which has been without a public library since the Jan. 17 Northridge earthquake.
A bookmobile will begin operating near the earthquake-damaged building and a storytelling series for children will be offered at a mall.
Library branches are open in Newhall and Canyon Country, according to Josefina Reyes, community library manager for the Valencia branch, but they are not convenient for all residents.
"We felt we wanted some presence in this community," Reyes said.
The bookmobile, stocked with about 3,000 books, will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays in the courtyard adjacent to the library at 23743 Valencia Blvd. It will also make available a small selection of cassettes and compact discs.
