Santa Barbara Public Library will transition Sidewalk Service to Grab ‘n Go in the Gallery December 2nd

As we enter the cold and rainy season, we’ll be transitioning our holds pickup and browsing opportunities indoors beginning Wednesday, December 2.

Patrons may visit the library for 15 minutes to pick up their reserved items, or browse curated collections of popular materials inside the Faulkner Gallery at Central Library and meeting rooms at branch locations. Our hours of service will remain the same, and we’ll continue to follow all public health guidelines. Learn the details of our safety protocols and procedures in our phased reopening plan in response to COVID-19.

Important information to know:

  • Patrons must have their Library card or state-issued ID to enter the building
  • Visits must be kept to 15 minutes or less
  • The number of patrons allowed at one time will be limited in order to ensure proper social distancing (6 household groups in the Faulkner Gallery, 1 household at branch locations)
  • No on-site computer use or restrooms will be available
