Impact of library cuts reviewed by board

The Board of Library Trustees held a budget workshop Monday to discuss in more detail the cuts facing the library. One of the biggest impacts of the cuts on customers will be the reduction in library hours: all libraries will be closed on Sundays and most will be closed on Mondays as well. Cuts also will mean fewer books and other materials, fewer programs and services and fewer staff able to help customers. Read more about the meeting in today’s Florida Times-Union. Also check out the library editorial that ran in today’s TU here.

  1. I remember when the library was opened until 9 only Mon-Wed. It was not always perfect for me since I worked Downtown but I adapted because the library was on 6 days a week. I would rather have the library open the most number of DAYS. It’s a sin that this city is even considering closing the libraries!
