Santa Barbara Central Library to Close June 9-10 for Interior Renovations

The Santa Barbara Central Library, located at 40 E. Anapamu St., will be closed Thursday and Friday, June 9 and 10, in preparation for renovations on the main and upper floors.

Renovation enhancements will include new magazine and newspaper display furniture, additional tables and seating in the eating area, a designated location for community event flyers, new display furniture for browsing collections on the upper floor, new reader tables and seating, installation of new furniture for improved DVD and audio book browsing and a new book sale area.

Patrons who have not been to the Central Library recently will find much to discover and many changes to the interior and exterior of the building.

With a view of the historic Courthouse from the reading and eating areas, free Wi-Fi and new comfortable furniture, the Central Library is a great place to spend time.

Access to the library’s digital collections — including audiobooks, eBooks, magazines and movies — is accessible at any time from the library’s website.

The Central Library will reopen Saturday, June 11 at 10 a.m. with staff on hand to welcome and show off the new features.

Buellton, Carpinteria, Goleta, Montecito and Solvang Libraries will be open regular hours. Eastside Library will be open regular hours Thursday, June 9, and open at noon Friday, June 10. 

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

— Jessica Cadiente is the library director of the Santa Barbara Public Library System.

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!
