Storytime times

This is my third time contacting the library about story time this year - always with the same complaint. I can't tell you how disappointing it was to receive the new brochure and see that once again there are no family story times earlier than 10:00, and that once again we would not be able to take advantage of the programming offered. I completely understand that funding is down and the library isn't able to have as many programs available, but couldn't there at least be one day a week with a 9 or 9:30 story time? Please take this into consideration for the next time any changes are made. Thank you.

After receiving your past suggestions, the library did reevaluate our storytime offerings. Many factors are taken into account when we plan storytimes. You are right, one of the reasons we’ve had to reduce of number of storytimes each week is due to staffing and budget constraints, but we also take other things into consideratation, such as, past statistics and school schedules. We found that 10:00 is the most ideal time for a majority of parents with school-age children, as well as for parents picking up preschool age children. I am sorry this timeslot does not work for you. Thank you for your suggestion. The library does take all of suggestions seriously and will continue to evaluate our programming needs on a regular basis.

My sons preschool is from 8-10:45. It's very frustrating that there can't be one day a week that's a little earlier. I'd even be happy with a 9:45.
