Library Hours

Have we ever looked into extending the weekend hours of the library? It would be great to look into longer evening hours! Thanks!

Thank you for your suggestion. I think it's great that you so enjoy using the library that you want to spend more time here!

While we would like to be able to expand our hours--and in fact have previously discussed this internally--the recessionary effect on property values has meant a reduction in our operating budget of nearly 25%. Our focus has been on continuing what services we can afford while delivering a balanced budget each year. As the cuts continue, it is more difficult to increase our hours. With projections for a total decline in our budget of 40% by 2013, I regret that we will likely be looking at fewer open hours, not more.

I will keep your suggestion for future consideration, and I thank you for taking the time to contact us.

Best,

Eva Davis, Director
