The City of Santa Maria is happy to announce that on Jan. 2, the main branch of the Santa Maria Public Library will expand its hours of service to the following:

» Monday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

» Tuesday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

» Wednesday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

» Thursday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

» Friday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

» Saturday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

» Sunday: Closed

The expanded service hours were approved by the City Council, and utilize Measure U funding to enable the service enhancement. The change will represent an increase of eight hours per week for a total of 56 hours, from the 48 hours per week which the library has had in place since July 5, 2011. It is expected that this effort by the City Council and the library to better serve the needs of the community in this way will be beneficial and well received by the community.

The Main Library is located at 421 S. McClelland St. in Santa Maria. The telephone number for information is 805.925.0994.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
