Get Your New Library Card & Volunteer Today

The City of Goleta is excited to take over direct management of the Goleta Valley Library on July 1, 2018! Beginning May 1, all patrons within the Goleta Valley Library service area will need a new library card in order to check out any material or access electronic resources. The new Goleta Valley Library cards will work at any Santa Barbara County Public Library. To get your new library card, visit the Goleta Valley Library or any library in Santa Barbara County. Remember, as of May 1, you will no longer be able to check out material until you update your account with a Goleta Valley Library card.

The Goleta Valley Library is also seeking volunteers to help re-label and re-barcode the entire 75,000 item collection by June 30. Please help us with this task! We need volunteers to either place new barcodes on each item or register the new barcodes into the library system using the library’s computers and scanners. Training will be provided on your first day. Sign up at the library or contact Library Director Allison Gray at or 805-562-5502. Thank you in advance!
