Marine Touch Tanks Returning to Santa Maria Public Library

The Central Coast Aquarium in Avila Beach is returning to the Santa Maria Public Library. Join us for a fun hands-on experience seeing, learning about and even touching intertidal animals. 

Marine touch tanks will be held in the Library’s Altrusa Theater Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015, and the event is open to all ages. Families will certainly not want to miss this exceptional program.

Free tickets are required for children and adults for a listed time-slot to attend. Time-slots are as follows: 3–3:30 p.m., 3:45–4:15 p.m. or 4:30–5 p.m. 

Tickets will be available beginning Thursday, Nov. 12. They may be picked up at the Youth Services Desk or reserved by calling 805.925.0994 as soon as they become available. 

Reserved tickets must be picked-up later the same day. Up to six tickets may be reserved per family, but reservations may be made only once. Tickets not picked up will be returned to available status the following day.

The Friends of the Santa Maria Public Library graciously sponsor this event.

The Library’s hours are 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The Library is closed on Sundays.

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.

Thanks for asking!
