Extended Hours To Commence At Santa Monica Public Library Branches On April 13:

Santa Monica Public Library Branches will expand their public hours, beginning Friday, April 13, 2012. The three neighborhood branches – Fairview, Montana, and Ocean Park Branch Libraries – will be open on Fridays from noon to 5:30 p.m.

The extension of branch library hours to include Friday starts during National Library Week, a time during which libraries across the country promote library use and support.

“This year we made the decision to celebrate libraries and promote library use by opening our doors on Fridays at our three neighborhood branch libraries,” said City Librarian Greg Mullen. “The new Friday branch hours will increase the ease of using the branches for checking out popular materials, attending a children’s, teen or adult program, and using the public computers.”

Starting Friday, April 13, Santa Monica Public Library hours for Fairview, Montana, and Ocean Park will be noon-9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; noon to 5:30 p.m. on Friday; 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday; closed on Sunday.

The Main Library Hours remain the same: 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; 1-5 p.m. on Sunday.

All Santa Monica Public Library facilities are wheelchair accessible, served by the Big Blue Bus, and offer bicycle parking racks.
