The library has removed time limits on visits. Patrons can stay in as long as desired, to browse the library shelves-- and the Friends' book sale! You can pay for your purchases in cash, by check (payable to FGVL), or by credit card at the Circulation Desk. Or put cash in the lobby boxes.
Opening hours could change if the Delta variant strongly impacts our community. Please check for current status on the library website: www.cityofgoleta.org/city-hall/goleta-valley-library
Thanks to your generosity, we sponsored the Summer Reading Program. Our young readers are avid readers, they read a whopping 8,657 books! The Friends are also donating additional funding to the book and material acquisitions budget and sponsoring all performances, still online at the moment. We increased as well our yearly donation to the library.
Our lecture program will stay online this quarter. We hope to resume lectures in situ in the Winter quarter.
Become a Friend, renew your membership for 2022,
give a membership in a friend's name or as a memorial.
Please consider adding to your yearly donation in support of the library collections and programs
so it can better serve our community in these troubled times.
