UCSB Library is excited to launch summer book clubs to bring the campus and community together to connect with others who love literature and engage in peer-led discussions on interesting topics.
The summer book clubs will focus on the five books nominated for the UCSB Reads 2022 shortlist, which will be announced in mid-June.
The UCSB Library is preparing to reopen a portion of the main Library for limited student study space at the beginning of spring quarter, March 29.
I want to welcome all new and returning students. Even though we have to welcome you virtually this year, I want you to know that all of us in the Library are working hard to support you so that you have a productive fall under these less than ideal circumstances.
When will the Library building reopen?
As of September 13, the main Library and Music Library are fully reopen for UCSB students, faculty, staff, and community members.
Note: Submissions for this event are now closed as we are at capacity. Thank you for your interest.
