Goleta Valley Library Celebrates New Chapter

To show its appreciation for the 225-plus volunteers who gave 3,371 hours of service to the community to rebarcode library materials at the Goleta Valley Library, the city invites the community to a Library Celebration, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday, July 1, at 500 N. Fairview Ave.

The event also commemorates the city of Goleta taking over direct management of the library.

There will food and entertainment, including 3-D printing demonstrations, live music, children’s book characters, face-painting, and balloon animals. A ribbon cutting is set for noon with City Council and staff.

“This is an exciting time for Goleta,” said Mayor Paula Perotte. “The city has discussed taking over management of the library for a long time, and I am happy to see everyone’s hard work pay off.

"Our community will benefit with the new programs and offerings at the Goleta Library.”

The city offers special thanks to the Friends of the Goleta Valley Library for sponsoring the family friendly event.

Overflow parking is available next to the library at the First Church of Christ, Scientist and across the street at the Goleta Union School District.

— Jaime Shaw for city of Goleta.

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!
