Source: Allison Gray for the Goleta Library

The Goleta branch of the Santa Barbara Public Library System will host a free workshop for adults who want to learn about preparing for emergencies and natural disasters.

Be Red Cross Ready will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. Monday, April 21 in the multipurpose room of the Goleta Library, 500 N. Fairview Ave. in Goleta. The class will be presented by local Red Cross experts in emergency preparedness.

This talk will present the main risks faced by those living on the Central Coast and the simple steps that individuals can take to prepare themselves and their families. Topics covered in this practical presentation include what essentials should be in an emergency kit, and what new smart-phone apps and free resources are available for preparing for emergencies.

For more information contact the Goleta Library at 805.964.7878.

Visit the Santa Barbara Public Library System online at SBPLibrary.org for information about library programs, events, locations and hours. 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!
