We Open Doors...

Support our Teens
Malcolm X Quote about Education

As 2017's centennial celebrations come to a close, the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation turns our focus to the future, and asks you to support the Central Library's next 100 years by making a generous, year-end investment in our most precious resource: our youth.   
A gift to the Teen Center, one of the Next Steps projects, supports the creation of a vibrant and safe environment staffed by library professionals who specialize in youth and young adult learning. The Teen Center will be a community space where
local teens can gather to do homework, conduct research, collaborate, or just hang out. This free space will bring our youth together and open doors to a brighter future for all Santa Barbara teens.  
Please join us as we open doors to the future.
