20th Anniversary of Calabasas Library

Saturday, July 14, was a special day of celebration as the community was invited to celebrate 20 years of the Calabasas Library, providing free and equal access to materials, information, and technology. The library has become a town center for the residents and visitors, from toddlers to seniors, over the past two decades. “Calabasas is a city of learning, and the library is the heart of that,” said Calabasas mayor Fred Gaines.

Supporters, patrons, and past and present staff gathered together to enjoy cake, giveaways, and a drawing for a Kindle Fire. Interesting events, including a virtual reality experience, 3D printing demo, crafts, yoga & meditation, face painting, and tours of the library, were offered to attendees of all ages. Storytime and pet partners reading was also offered. There were stage performances throughout the day from Dinna Pitt, Harmonic Youth Orchestra, and Chef Steph. The city librarian, Barbara Lockwood, also offered her remarks and presented the celebratory cake.
