Santa Barbara Library Invites Teens to Create ‘Day of the Dead’ Shrines

Enjoy crafting? Looking for a place to do art with others? The Santa Barbara Public Library System invites junior high and high school students to the Central Library to make beautiful shrines in celebration of Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead.

The workshop will take place beginning at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25 at the Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St.

Pre-registration is strongly recommended. To guarantee a spot in the workshop, contact the library at 805.564.5603 or go online by clicking here to the library’s calendar of events to pre-register.

Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings to remember friends and family members who have died. Celebrations can take a humorous tone, as celebrants remember funny events and anecdotes about the departed.

Participants are encouraged to bring photos, images and small objects to include in the shrine. All other supplies will be provided by the library. Empty cigar boxes have been donated by Santa Barbara Cigar and Tobacco.

This program is the beginning of a monthly series of craft-oriented Makerspace programs for teens, and is supported by the Friends of the Santa Barbara Library.

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!
