Warm Up with Goleta Library’s Adult Winter Reading Program

Post-holiday wintertime is a great time to settle in and read a good book. The Santa Barbara Public Library System invites adults to the Goleta Library to join the first Winter Reading Club, Warm Up With Reading! at the Goleta Library, 500 N. Fairview Ave., starting Wednesday and running through Feb. 28.

Participants can read or listen to any titles they choose at home or away from home, and become eligible for a weekly drawing.

No registration is required for this simple program. After finishing a library book or listening to a library audiobook, patrons come to the Goleta Library and fill out an entry ticket. Drawings will be held weekly, with prizes provided through the generosity of local merchants, organizations and the Friends of the Goleta Library. There is no minimum or maximum number of titles to read for the program.

“Children and teens have a wonderful annual summer reading club at our libraries,” said branch supervisor and librarian Allison Gray. “I wanted to provide the nostalgic experience to our adult users as well. I remember the fun of participating in those clubs as a child and thought we adults could use a little excitement in these dreary winter months!”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
