Goleta Valley Library's Reading Corner - January 2019

Goleta Valley Library Header

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Goleta Valley Library’s newsletter!  Each month we will be sending you a brief update highlighting a few of the programs, special events, and activities going on at the Library.  For complete information on all of our programs, reference databases, suggested booklists for all ages, and much more, please visit our website at www.goletavalleylibrary.org.  You can also “like” us on Facebook for the latest information.

Since July we’ve received a number of grants and I’d like to highlight our Book to Action grant.  We will be creating a full slate of programs around the book “Ocean Country” by Liz Cunningham.  There will be a community-wide book discussion, children’s programming based on ocean crafts, a presentation by incredibly talented underwater photographer Richard Salas, a visit from the author herself, and to celebrate International Ocean Day, a family beach clean-up day at Haskell’s Beach in June.  We are very excited for everyone to read Ms. Cunningham’s book which was written after a near-drowning experience.  She decided to travel the world to view different areas’ efforts to rehabilitate our endangered oceans.  It is poetic, stirring, and above all, hopeful.  Look for a brochure with all of the events listed coming soon!
