UCSB Libraries         UCSB Reads


Change begins with learning . . .


UCSB Reads is an exciting, award-winning library initiative that has developed into a collaborative campus and community effort to encourage everyone to read the featured book and then participate in related discussions and activities on campus and in the community. It's a wonderful way to engage learners and to connect with the campus community. With your help, we will continue to contribute to the understanding of the world around us.

Private donations are essential to building and sustaining compelling outreach programs such as "UCSB Reads." For more information about investing in this dynamic library initiative, please contact:
