Check out New library hours around town

By Times Staff Writer
Published November 30, 2007



Clearwater's libraries have changed their hours, largely in response to budget cuts, but the city's five branches lost a combined total of just 13 hours a week, director Barbara Pickell said. The good news: The Main Library is now open Sundays. Here are the new hours:

- Main, 100 N Osceola Ave.; Countryside, 2741 State Road 580 and East, 2251 Drew St.: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

- North Greenwood, 905 N Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday

- Beach, 69 Bay Esplanade: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.


Speed limit for Main is topic

Do you think the 25 mph speed limit on the west end of Main Street is too low? Or is it just right? You can voice your opinion at a City Commission meeting which begins at 7:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 750 Main St. During the meeting, the city engineer will present commissioners with a summary report of a speed limit study performed in October. Then residents can have their say and commissioners can vote whether to change it or not.
