As education, work, and community life have moved online in recent months, those who lack access to computers and the internet are being left behind. This includes many of your fellow patrons that rely on the Library's educational programs and services but lack the resources at home to access them.
Today is #GivingTuesday, a day of giving and unity. A gift to the Library Foundation today helps ensure that our community has the tools they need to participate in society equally. Your support and generosity will help close the widening digital gap in Santa Barbara.
Today, you can immediately help:
Students who are at-home learning and need access to books, technology, and help with their homework.
Parents and caregivers who are looking for resources to educate their children and families at home.
Unemployed and small business owners impacted by COVID-19 seeking community resources and job search assistance.
