The Santa Barbara Public Library is hosting the annual Community Baby Shower at the Central Library, located at 40 E. Anapamu St., on Saturday, May 20, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you’re expecting a baby or have a little one already, this baby shower is for you! Participants are welcome to come by anytime during this free event to see what the library and community organizations have to offer for their new baby. The first 50 people through the door will get a gift bag with swag and toys from the partnering community organizations and a free board book from the Santa Barbara Public Library!

A wide variety of community organizations invite parents to connect to learn how to support their baby’s health, development, and early literacy. Local organizations will be tabling with fun activities and resources to share, including:

SBPL will also highlight the wide array of services that support children and families, including early literacy classes, parenting classes, and more. This event is a chance for new parents to connect with each other and the organizations in our community that serve them, discover learning resources, and learn more about early literacy, all under one roof!
