As of July 1, the Goleta Valley Library is an independent municipal library.
The opening festivities were attended by over two hundred patrons. Ribbon-cutting ceremony, balloons and face-painting for the kids, lots of good food and cheer, a wonderful event to celebrate a new era of service to our community.
Remember to exchange your old card for the new one. This must be done in person, it cannot be done online.
- You can get a Goleta card independently of your address, you don't have to live in a specific area to get a Goleta library card.
- Only ONE card at a time! When you get a Goleta card, your SBPL card isn't valid anymore. The Goleta Valley library belongs to the Black Gold Library Network so there is no change in borrowing materials from other libraries in the network. You will need to change the card number you used to borrow online to the number on your new card.
- Make sure all members of your family get a card! Many families use only one card to borrow materials. This does not reflect the number of our active patrons. It is very important to accurately demonstrate how much our community uses and values its library.
