Montecito Library to Host ‘The Game of Bridge: An Introduction’

The Montecito Library will present “The Game of Bridge: An Introduction” from 1-2 p.m. Friday, April 22, 2016. The Montecito Library, a branch of the Santa Barbara Public Library System, is located at 1469 East Valley Road.  

“Bridge is a lot more than just a card game. It is a cerebral sport,” wrote tennis player Martina Navratilova in her forward to Bridge. “Bridge teaches you logic, reasoning, quick thinking, patience, concentration and partnership skills.”

Attendees of the Montecito Library’s event will learn about the history and evolution of bridge from Alain Cardinal and Carole Bennett.

Cardinal teaches intermediate bridge classes at Pacific Bridge School, and Bennett has taught beginning bridge and beyond basic classes at Santa Barbara City College for the past several years.

Bridge is a game for those who enjoy thinking, calculating and just having a good time. Come join these two experienced teachers who are passionate about bridge and give it a try. 

Information about Santa Barbara Public Library System locations, hours, events and programs is available at SBPLibrary.org.

Tatiana Johnson is the branch supervisor at 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!
