Celebrate SB Reads 2023 Kick-Off!

Workshops to develop stories are being hosted at SBPL for teens on Friday, September 22 and adults on Saturday, September 23. Register in our events calendar.
Attendees will have the first chance to pick up a copy of A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende and register for upcoming SB Reads' programs.
This event is part of SB Reads. Santa Barbara Reads events will run from late September through mid-November and include book discussions, workshops, musical performances, and more! Santa Barbara Reads is funded through the annual support of the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation. To learn more about the foundation and how to support SB Reads 2023, visit their website.
Participants in this event may be photographed by Library staff. These photos may be used in promotional or educational publications, including in print, social media, and presentations. Please see staff if you do not consent to having your photo taken. Staff will obtain individual, signed photo releases of photographs that contain only an individual as opposed to a group.
