Grand Opening Party!

Celebrating the new Children's Library and main floor renovations

Come help celebrate the completion of the Children’s Library and the the main floor renovation of the Central Library at the free Grand Opening party! Starting at 12:00 noon there will be entertainment inside and all around the Library – zoo animals, karaoke, juggler and other performers, storytelling -- plus snacks, local dignitaries and a ribbon cutting. The Santa Barbara Central Library is located at 40 E. Anapamu St., at the corner of Anacapa St.

After seven months of construction noise, temporary quarters, a mini-library for kids, and roundabout access to different parts of the building, the Library is now (nearly) all fixed up and ready for its closeup.The big, bright new Children's Library is on the lower level - take the stairs or the newly refurbished elevator.

See the new look on the main floor - more study space, new reading chairs, an all-new Adult Literacy Center, a tech lab and a separate area with tables and chairs for snacking. 

The Grand Opening celebration begins at noon, an hour before official Sunday opening time. Winning tickets for the Children's Library fundraiser drawing will be drawn at 3:00 p.m. and the festivities will wind down at 4:00. Everyone is welcome to join the fun!

For more information call the Children's Desk at 564-5603.
