“Ocean Country” at the Goleta Valley Library

The Goleta Valley Library has received a number of grants, including the Book to Action grant. The Library is preparing a number of programs around Liz Cunningham’s book, “Ocean Country.” After a near-drowning experience, Ms. Cunningham decided to travel the world to view different areas’ efforts to rehabilitate our endangered oceans. This led to her writing her book, “Ocean Country,” which is poetic, stirring, and above all hopeful. Some of the activities the Library will host include a community-wide book discussion, children’s programming based on ocean crafts, a presentation by talented underwater photographer Richard Salas, a visit from the author herself, and to celebrate International Ocean Day, a family beach clean-up day at Haskell’s Beach. More details on the activities will be available soon at www.GoletaValleyLibrary.org.
