Library, Museum of Art Offering Free Bilingual Storytime, Special Art Project

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Santa Barbara Public Library System are teaming up this summer to offer two Saturday art activities, on June 15 and Aug. 17.

On both days, families are invited to start their morning with the library’s regularly scheduled Bilingual Storytime at 10:30 a.m. Afterward, families will move next door to the Family Resource Center at the Museum of Art to create special summertime masterpieces.

The free art project will be led by one of the museum’s talented working artists. Families will also receive a free family pass to the Museum of Art as part of this activity.

These “Stories and Art Together” activities are a product of collaboration between the Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapamu St., and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State St. They complement the library’s “Dig Into Reading”-themed Summer Reading Program, which instills a lifelong love of learning by encouraging children to read and participate in events over the summer.

These programs are supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Junior League of Santa Barbara.

For more information, call the Santa Barbara Central Library at 805.564.5603. Click here to find out about this and other programs at the Santa Barbara Public Library System libraries. This museum program and all library programs are free and open to the public.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
