Pearson Mascot
Pearson keeping an eye on the Library

Pearson Library opened to the public on April 14th, 1985, thanks in large part to major sponsors Clifford and Alma Pearson of Santa Barbara. The Library has evolved from a study hall to a diverse educational environment with technology and physical spaces to support a wide range of learning styles. Keep your eyes open for our local library flamingo, Pearson, who reminds us to stay balanced as we conduct our research!
