What We Fund

The Library Plaza Campaign

Join us in opening doors to expanded experiences in literacy, learning and adventure while honoring Santa Barbara’s historic, cultural and architectural significance with our Library Plaza.

For over 100 years the Santa Barbara Public Library has continually grown to meet the evolving needs of our community. It has served as a hub for lifelong literacy and civic participation, a gathering place for children to learn, a catalyst for imaginations of all ages, and a virtual refuge. Community building happens at the Library: people come together for inspiration, education, fun, engagement, and leave feeling a stronger sense of community.
