“Stories by Stagecoach” Library/Museum Collaboration Focuses on History for Fun Family Storytime

The historic Santa Ynez Library and the Santa Ynez Valley Historical Museum & Carriage House announce the fall season for “Stories by the Stagecoach," a free monthly program for children ages 7-12 and their families. 

On Saturday, Sept. 17, at 2 p.m., come sit in the Parks-Janeway Carriage House to hear about "The Wildest Race Ever: the Story of the 1904 Olympic Marathon," by Meghan McCarthy, along with more stories of sports in the early 1900s. 

Both the Museum and the Library are located at 3596 Sagunto Street in Santa Ynez.
The program aims at bringing history to life for young people, with readings from historical novels or books for children, discussions, and a craft or related activity. 

After the hour-long program, visitors are welcome to explore the Museum and the Library next door.
The Oct. 15 program will focus on California ranchos in the 1830s  and ‘40s, with "Anita of Rancho Del Mar" by Elaine F. O’Brien, and "The Stories of Juana Briones, Alta California Pioneer" by Glenda Richter.  

November 19 will feature two classics by Laura Ingalls Wilder: "Little House in the Big Woods," set in Wisconsin in 1867, and "Farmer Boy," set in upstate New York, 1866.
The programs are free to the public.  Please contact the Santa Ynez Historical Museum at (805) 688-7889 or the library at [email protected] to make reservations.

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.

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!
