With the launch of a new online catalog, Goleta and Santa Ynez Valley Libraries offer a new way to find great reading, starting September 28. Brought to you by Aspen Discovery, the catalog includes features that make it easy to find, navigate, and browse.

One of the biggest improvements is that the entire library collection – over a million titles – is now readily available in one place, including all physical items such as books and DVDs, as well as digital titles such as e-books and downloadable movies.

Another feature is that digital titles can now be borrowed directly through the catalog at the push of a button, so customers no longer need to log into a separate site to manage their monthly digital borrowings.

For customers who want to easily browse the library’s collection online, the new catalog home page features popular categories and genres for all ages, from New York Times bestsellers to graphic novels for teenagers in passing by picture books for children, with projectors including the most requested. and just added titles.

Ultimately, the Aspen Discovery catalog will completely replace the current catalog, but access to the previous catalog will remain available for the time being for customers who wish to continue using it. Visit and click on the classic catalog icon.

Direct your questions to one of the library’s three branches or ask for help at the library in person. For more information on Goleta and Santa Ynez Valley Libraries’ programs and services, visit
