New Hours for Los Alamos Library


Thanks to funding from the Friends of the Los Alamos Library, the operating hours at the Los Alamos Branch Library will change from five to six days a week beginning Monday, January 6th, 2020.


The Library, currently closed on Mondays, will open on Monday afternoons from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. The remaining Tuesday through Friday hours will also be 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., closing one hour earlier than the current 7:00 p.m. closing time.  Hours for Friday and Saturday will remain the same.   


The change in Library hours is based on the results of a survey conducted from December 10, 2018 to January 21, 2019.  The addition of Monday hours will enable the expansion of the after school homework help program for local students. The Los Alamos Library is located at 405 Helena Street.


The total weekly hours of operation will increase one additional hour thanks to funding from the Friends of the Los Alamos Library, a non-profit group that raises funds to supplement the Library budget.  The Library is funded by the County of Santa Barbara at $7.80 per capita and 16 weekly open hours.  The Friends of the Library fund eight additional hours weekly.  The County contracts with the City of Santa Maria to operate the Library branch in Los Alamos.


Current Los Alamos Branch Library hours are Tuesday through Thursday from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Commencing January 6th, hours will be Monday through Friday from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.


Questions may be directed to the Library’s administration office, (805) 925-0994 extension 2321.
