Earlier this month, during the Thomas Fire's school closures and evacuations, the new Children's Library became a welcome refuge for numerous families looking for enjoyable and healthful enrichment for their children. Library staff added extra programming and recreational activities to accommodate the record number of families who visited the Central Library. The Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation wishes to thank the librarians who stepped forward during this time of extraordinary need, and thank you, our donors, whose gifts built and support the space that made this incredibly valuable community service possible.
Please consider making a gift to support the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation today. And thank you!
