Santa Barbara Public Library remains open during Thomas Fire

Posted: Updated:

As the Thomas Fire continues to burn, the Santa Barbara Public Library remains open and is continuing to provide programming, information, and resources for the community.
 
Santa Barbara Central Library continues to distribute N95 masks, and also has a fire map and information kiosk with updates on fire conditions.
 
East Valley Road is closed due to the fire so the Montecito Library is closed. Those who have items on hold waiting to be picked up at the Montecito Library or items en route to the location will have their holds extended until the library is reopened.
 
Expanded programs and events continue at Central and Eastside libraries this week. 

Here's a list of events for Wednesday (December 13, 2017):
 
In the Children's Library, families can make winter crafts, play board games, or build in the Lego Lab all day. For younger children, storytime will happen at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. There will be a family movie, Goosebumps, in the Island Room at 1 p.m.
 
From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., the Tech Lab is open for vintage Nintendo games, X-Box games, and gaming on the virtual reality console (which does require parent/guardian permission and is only for ages 13 and older). The Tech Lab will be open for coding with robots from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
 
Families are invited to make origami holiday cards at the Carpinteria Library at 3:30 p.m.
 
At Eastside Library, children can learn about drawing comics from professional artist Carlos Nieto at 3:30 p.m.
 
The Solvang Library is hosting a concert with folk singer Adam Miller at noon.

Here some ways to get around the closure by car, train, ferry or plane. It is an important reminder that drivers cannot currently get around the closure by taking Highway 192 or other side...
