The Santa Cruz Public Library system “connects, inspires, and informs,” transforming lives and strengthening communities. The Capitola Branch (one of 10 branches in the system) serves people from throughout Santa Cruz County. For its size and staffing, the Branch is one of the most heavily used in the entire system and is an important asset to our community. It is currently housed in six bolted-together portable modules — a 17-year- old structure that is timeworn, outdated, and undersized.
