Looking Back on 2020!
This has been a year like no other- but librarians have helped us get through it! From SBPL Delivers to virtual SB Reads, here are some of our Santa Barbara Public Library and Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation accomplishments from the past twelve months.

In 2020, the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation was able to grant the following to the Santa Barbara Public Library, because of donors like YOU!

We Open Doors!
Women’s Fund Passthrough Grant for "Library on the Go"- $100,000
SB Foundation COVID-19 Response Grant (digital resource support)- $10,000
Children’s Library Endowment distribution- $64,492
SBPL Delivers- $6,000
SB Reads 2020 Virtual Author Lectures with author Elizabeth Gilbert- $10,000 

Hundreds of Library patrons attended the virtual author conversation with Elizabeth Gilbert. The Library was also able to connect the author with a few virtual classrooms, where she discussed creativity, art, and overcoming fear with groups of High School students. Thank YOU for sponsoring!
Thoughts From a Donor Like YOU
"Super impressed with how quickly my book requests became available and how organized the staff was for today’s pickup!! Wonderful to experience the transition to Grab ‘n Go, see book displays and be in the Faulkner Gallery again!"
