Luisa Bird-Robinson

I became the SBMS Librarian in 2014, and couldn't be happier! After 17 years with Santa Barbara Public Library, I bring librarianship and my love of books and life-long learning to our community.

After studying Art History at UCSB, I moved to northern New Mexico where my children were born and where I enjoyed the creative and unique offerings associated with rural life and that rugged geography. Returning to Santa Barbara, I enjoyed the benefits of full-time librarianship and community leadership working for the City of Santa Barbara.

When I am not reading, you can probably find me in my art studio working in a variety of mixed medias, in a yoga class, walking the beach at lowtide, or in the Bay Area visiting my children and grandaughter. I count myself as one of the luckiest people alive!
