The Montecito Branch of the Santa Barbara Public Library System will have a guest poet, Dr. Paul Willis, at the Dec. 4 meeting of the Montecito Library Poetry Club.

The club, which meets the first Thursday of the month from 3:30 to 5 p.m., discusses the life and works of a selected poet each month.

This event, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Community Hall of the Montecito Library, located at 1469 East Valley Road in Montecito.

Dr. Willis is a professor of English at Westmont College in Montecito, and was the poet laureate of Santa Barbara from 2011 to 2013.

Dr. Willis will be reading a selection of his poems and will share with the group some of the joys of writing and teaching.

Information about Santa Barbara Public Library System locations, hours, events and programs is available at SBPLibrary.org. All library programs are free and open to the public.

— Sara Doehring is a branch supervisor for the Montecito Library.

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!
