Library Groundbreaking

The Santa Barbara Public Library broke ground on the Michael Towbes Plaza earlier this month

A new era for the Santa Barbara Public Library recently began as the City Council approved a $9.3 million contract for the construction of the new Michael Towbes Plaza. “The Library Plaza Campaign has made evident the importance of the public-private partnership that our City and County must continue to invest in and foster to help inspire the community to envision a world-class Library for Santa Barbara,” said Foundation Director Lauren Trujillo. Along with some renovations to the actual library, the plaza will provide a new easily-accessible urban green space that can be the home for art, education, and culture in downtown Santa Barbara.
