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!
