As part of the annual Summer Reading Program, the Santa Barbara Library System including Central, Buellton, Carpinteria, Eastside, Goleta, and Solvang Libraries will each host a Pajama Storytime in June. Children are encouraged to attend this special storytime dressed in either pajamas or exercise gear to fit with the Summer Reading Program theme “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!”

Join library storytellers as they read stories, sing silly rhymes, make crafts, and perhaps even enjoy a visit from some very special guests… Pajama Storytimes will take place on the following days and locations:
