Santa Maria Public Library Offers Free Events for Children

Songs, story time bring joy of books to kids

Free tickets will be available on Tuesday for “Tongue Twisters, Crazy Gibberish & the Cha-Cha-Cha!” This performance will take place at 7 p.m. June 16 at the Santa Maria Public Library, and is open to children ages 3 and up.

Sandi Sylver, storyteller, ventriloquist and songstress extraordinaire visits the Central Coast from her Chicago home. The Santa Maria Public Library is excited to host her for a very special evening. Those who want to attend must obtain a free ticket from the children’s room prior to the show.

Signups will begin on June 10 for Whale of a Tale Story Time for preschoolers ages 3 to 5. This event features stories, songs, finger plays and a book on DVD. Story time is offered on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. and on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. Preregistration for the six-week session (June 24 through July 30) is required.

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!
