The Santa Cruz Public Libraries (SCPL), in partnership with the Friends of the Scotts Valley Library, are excited to announce the grand reopening of the remodeled Scotts Valley Branch Library – a Measure S funded modernization.
The Grand Reopening Celebration takes place from 10a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 6th, at the Scotts Valley Branch Library, located at 251 Kings Village Road in Scotts Valley.
Opening day festivities begin with special guest speakers followed by refreshments at the Cafe, generously hosted by the Friends of the Scotts Valley Library until 2:00 p.m. Children can enjoy Storytime with Librarian Kari, participate in making crafts, and be dazzled by teenage Magician James Chan. Enjoy live music with local favorites Tim Brady of Cement Ship from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Fireside Room and relax under an umbrella on the patio.
“We are thrilled to invite the Scotts Valley community back to the Library,” Said Library Director Wilburn. “With the seismic upgrades, new roof, HVAC system, community room enclosure, and overall refresh, I am excited to see residents come together to read, learn and collaborate!”
All ages are invited to join us for the widely anticipated opening of the Scotts Valley Branch Library.
