Learn How to Help Out at Library’s Volunteer Fair

The Santa Barbara Public Library will host its first Volunteer Fair, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, July 28, at the Central Library.

Volunteerism is invaluable to the community, nonprofits and individuals. Throughout Santa Barbara, there are numerous programs, events, projects and services that only flourish because of the dedication of volunteers.

The Volunteer Fair will showcase some 20 local nonprofits and government organizations representing diverse community impact areas, from housing, to education, to the arts.

People who are passionate about community service can find opportunities that suit their interests; whether it is a retiree seeking to dedicate some free time to a cause, a student needing to complete community service credit, or anyone who wants to enrich his/her life by volunteering.

This event will provide an opportunity for individuals to connect with local nonprofit and community organizations.  

The library welcomes organizations to share potential volunteer, internship and program opportunities.

Organizations interested in having a space at the fair can visit https://santabarbaraca.evanced.info/signup/EventDetails?EventId=13281&backTo=Calendar&startDate=2018/07/01 to register, or contact Ahmad Merza at [email protected], or phone 805-564-5635.
Visit the Santa Barbara Public Library System, SBPLibrary.org, for information about library hours, locations, programs and services. 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!
