Las Aletas’ Operation Bookshelf Donates $2,500 to Goleta Library

Funds will buy new books, books on CD and large-print books

The Las Auxiliary of Assistance League of Santa Barbara was thrilled to be able to support the Goleta Public Library with a check for $2,500.

Allison Gray, the Goleta library’s director, received the check on behalf of the library. The funds will be used to purchase new books, books on CD and large-print books for library patrons. Patrons of Operation Bookshelf will also benefit, as the program supplies reading and listening materials to homebound residents.

Las Aletas operates three philanthropies: Kids on the Block, a puppet performance with the schools to educate children about topics like bullying; Operation School Bell, which provides new clothes to more than 600 local school children in need; and Operation Bookshelf, which serves homebound patrons by delivering books and listening materials to them.

— Irene Falzone is public relations chairwoman of Las Auxiliary of Assistance League of Santa Barbara.

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!
