Eventually we plan to hold meetings every other month on the third Saturday of the month. Unfortunately, until the COVID situation improves and stabilizes, meeting in person in large groups indoors presents too many challenges. Instead, we are going to be sending out periodic email updates. If you are not already on our email list, send your address to Karen.

Next meeting:

When the library opens, find the schedule of meetings here.

Capitola Branch Friends Chapter Program:
“Animate Your Stories”

The Capitola Branch Friends in partnership with Community TV created a six week workshop designed to help teens create and animate their own stories. The first session, held at our new library, was in the fall of 2021.  Have a look at the animations that our first group of teens created.
