Las Aletas Check Helps Local Library

Assistance League Supports Goleta Public Library with $2,500

The Las Auxiliary of Assistance League of Santa Barbara was thrilled to be able to support the Goleta Public Library with a check for $2500.

Allison Gray, Goleta Public Library director received the check on behalf of the Library to be used for purchase of new books, books on CD and large print books for library patrons. Patrons of Operation Bookshelf will also benefit, as they supply reading and listening materials to homebound residents.

Las Aletas operates three philanthropies: Kids on the Block, a puppet performance with the schools to educate children about topics like bullying, Operation School Bell, which provides new clothes to over 600 local school children in need, and Operation Bookshelf serving homebound patrons by delivering books and listening materials to them.
