Outreach staff at Hope Services

Hope Services and Hope Senior Services

Once a month Outreach staff visit the Hope Center for Developmentally Disabled Adults in downtown Santa Cruz and Hope Senior Services in Aptos. They read stories, books and poems in a reader's theater style and bring materials for the clients to read and listen to.

County Correctional Facilities

Library staff members provide library services and literacy activities at the four facilities twice a month. Inmates may register for library cards, check out books and make book requests from the library's collections.
