Dive Into Learning at the Long Beach Public Library!

Graphic reads "Dive Into Learning" in a blue, bubbly font. The graphic depicts an underwater view, featuring a blue whale, a purple octopus, and a blue sting ray. Green seaweed floats at the bottom of the ocean. A blue sky peaks above the ocean waves.

Got a little one ages 0 to 5? Join Dive Into Learning, our early learning program, at the Long Beach Public Library.

To participate in this year-round early learning program, visit the Library’s Beanstack page, download the Beanstack Tracker app from Google Play or the App Store, or visit any of our library locations.
