The Santa Clarita Library has released its lineup for upcoming events.

Scroll down below to see what the library has in store.


Karen BoederMeet Karen Boeder, adult services library assistant at Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Branch

Q: What are your areas of expertise?
I began my library career as a part-time library aide and, during that time, I learned a lot about working in the library. I enjoy keeping our collections organized so patrons can find the items they are looking for. My degree is in history and I love helping patrons dig deeper into an area of interest. I am a certified passport acceptance agent too. Getting a passport can seem intimidating, so it is gratifying to help our community members navigate the process. I am also an avid knitter and look forward to leading the program “Sit and Stitch” at the Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Branch this fall.

Q: What’s your next adventure?
I am in the midst of my best adventure. Six years ago, my family moved to California from Texas and we are still exploring our new home. I would love to rent an Airstream travel trailer and camp with my husband and dogs in the beautiful state and national parks.

Food for Fines

Throughout the month of September, patrons can get $5 in overdue item fees or replacement library card fees waived for every non-perishable food or toiletry item brought in to any branch for donation through our Food for Fines program! Collected items will be donated to the Santa Clarita Valley Food PantrySanta Clarita Grocery and The Salvation Army. There is a maximum of $20 waived per Santa Clarita Public Library account.
