Slowly but surely, we are beginning to see spring arrive in Santa Cruz County. Of course, the change here is not as complete as in some places I have lived, like New England, but it’s still recognizable as a time of new energy and rebirth. And one rebirth that we can look forward to this Spring is the reopening of several of our branches throughout the county. In March we expect to see Boulder Creek and Garfield Park handed over to the Library from the contractors, and a few weeks later these branches will reopen to the public with grand openings to celebrate their return to the towns and neighborhoods that have missed them so much. And then we will see Branciforte, Scotts Valley, and Live Oak reopen over the balance of the year.
