Happy Holidays from Altadena Library District!

Click here or click above to enjoy our playful, holiday video for your loved ones and you this holiday season! 

Another year comes to an end, and what a year it has been! The warmth of the holiday season has triggered a contemplative atmosphere here at Altadena Libraries as we reflect on the outstanding accomplishments of not only our Library District in 2017 but of our community as well. 2017 has certainly been eventful, and through both challenges and achievements, we have been thrilled to witness our community engaging in thoughtful conversations, exploring new ideas, and always striving for the very best for Altadena and our surrounding communities.

And just like that, a new year begins. Motivation is renewed as we launch into new projects with new focus and determination. New opportunities arise. New friendships form. Let us hold tightly to these hopeful feelings beyond just the flurry of excitement surrounding the New Year. The famed poet T.S. Eliot once said, "Every moment is a fresh beginning."  Let us embrace every moment in 2018 with hope, resilience, and Eliot's refreshing perspective as we face the inevitable challenges and successes that the year will present.

We are honored to serve as your local library, and we hope to see you in 2018 enjoying one of our educational programs, reading a book in one of our libraries, and using our many resources to unlock the power of new ideas! Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!
