You Can Do That @ the Library?!
Share Your Story
Join a community project, "We Have Stories To Tell" which unites children with family members, senior citizens and library staff to encourage the development of literacy skills through story telling. Children have the opportunity to make their own books in which they portray the story they are telling with illustrations of their own design.

To read about the flight and see more photographs, take a look at the Sentinel story.
Here are some photos that our staff captured from the roof of the library. If you have photos to share, you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Local Music Survey
Update: Thank you for helping us learn about your interest in local music! The survey is now closed. Keep an eye out for some exciting future projects based on your feedback!
Santa Cruz County has a vibrant local music scene featuring many talented musicians and fine venues. Drawing the interest of locals and visitors alike, the Santa Cruz music scene is an integral part of the history, culture, and economy of our community. Therefore, the library is investigating ways to enhance access to local music in the present as well as document local music to preserve a historical record for the future.
Please take a few moments to complete this survey. It will help us understand your thoughts on local music and how you access music in your everyday life. It takes approximately 10 – 15minutes and is completely anonymous.
As a “thank you”, you may opt to enter a drawing for $20 at Streetlight Records. If you opt to enter the drawing, you will be required to supply us with contact information. Your privacy and the confidentiality of the responses you provide to us are extremely important. Your survey results will remain anonymous, and your contact information will not be shared, sold, or spammed in any way. The only way we will use your information is to contact you in the event that you win!
