Public Library Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule

Furlough Closures for Santa Barbara City Librarie

All libraries in the Santa Barbara Public Library System will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, November 25 and Friday, November 26.

The Central and Eastside libraries will be closed due to unpaid employee leave (furlough) on Tuesday, November 23 and Wednesday, November 24. Because of regular Monday closings, Central and Eastside libraries will therefore be closed Monday through Friday of Thanksgiving week.

The Goleta and Montecito Libraries will be open on Monday, November 22. The Goleta, Montecito, Carpinteria, and Solvang Libraries will be open Tuesday, November 23 and Wednesday, November 24.

The Library’s catalog, downloadable eBooks and audiobooks, databases and other online services will remain accessible at all times. Materials may be returned in the street-side Library book drops, and will be collected daily. Loan periods will be adjusted so that due dates will not fall during the period Nov. 22-26

A complete listing of Santa Barbara Public Library System branch hours, locations and holiday schedules may be found on the Library website.
