The old Story Well is now remodeled into the new Jake Boysel Children's Room. The Boysel Family's generous donation in memory of their son Jake started the process. Jake passed away at the age of 12 after being hit by a car on his way to school. Jake loved to read, was always found holding a book, and considered the Goleta Library one of his favorite place. The new room will benefit all our kids, it is a great tribute to his memory.
The Friends funded all additional costs associated with the remodeling of the well, thank you for your generosity.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, February 11, was very well attended. Here is a link to the video of the event: https://www.facebook.com/CityofGoleta/videos/332841904239338/
