The Santa Barbara Central Library is now accepting reservation requests for the use of the lobby display cases for the year beginning January 2017. Local nonprofit organizations are invited to submit requests for use of the display spaces. There is no charge for the use of these exhibit areas.
Display cases are assigned for a one-month period, and are offered to provide the public with attractive, diversified displays designed to introduce new ideas, broaden interest, and develop appreciation and understanding of the various facets of our culture.

Some of the organizations that have installed displays in recent years include the Alliance for Living & Dying Well, Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and Women’s Economic Ventures.
The Santa Barbara Public Library System’s web site,, has the sizes of the display cases and a link to a printable reservation request form (under “I Want To…” / Reserve a Display Case).

Requests may be delivered or mailed to the Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapamu St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101 or e-mailed to [email protected] Organizations that have not used the display cases in the past two years will be given priority in assigning spaces for 2017.
For further information contact Central Library administration at 564-5608.

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!
