Locations & Hours

Effective February 16th, the State of California and County of Santa Barbara updated public health guidelines regarding the wearing of masks.

Santa Barbara Public Library will no longer require masks for fully vaccinated individuals during regular business hours. Masks are still recommended for all and required for those who are not fully vaccinated. SBPL will also lift capacity and time limits for visits to the Library. Seating will be available, computer sessions will return to one hour increments, and the Upper Level of Central Library will be fully accessible. 

SBPL also offers Homebound Library Cards for those who are unable to visit the Library in person. Learn more about Homebound Library Cards and apply for a Homebound Library Card.
