SB Reads

As part of our work to foster the development of our Public Library as the cultural heart of Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation is proud to fund SB Reads.

Each year the Santa Barbara Public Library hosts the Santa Barbara Reads program that offers one title to the community with the goal that everyone will read the same book at the same time, sparking engagement and conversations about the themes in the book and how they relate to our lives.
