Located at 40 East Anapamu Street in downtown Santa Barbara the new 6,325 square foot Library will quadruple the existing Children’s Library space. The library design by LPA Associates, a leading library architecture firm, includes:
Space: Expansion of the current 1,500 square foot Children’s to more than 6,000 square feet.
Technology: Flexible computer stations will provide an attractive learning environment for youngsters from preschoolers through school-aged children.
Parent/Child Areas: Sunny reading nooks for sharing books; spaces to encourage the free play so important to early childhood development.
Performance Venue: A theatre and program space will provide areas for regular story times and free performances from visiting artists, including musicians, theatre companies, storytellers, and science and nature programs.
Safety Upgrades: A new fire suppression system protects not only our library participants, but our community’s investment in the Children’s Library.
