Library closed next week

By Geeky Swedes · August 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

In an effort to save money, the library will close a week from today through Labor Day. The last day to check out Library items before the closure is Sunday, Aug. 30 and operations resume on Tuesday, Sept. 8th. No library materials will be due during this time and no fines will be accrued. The website and online catalog will be down, and there will be no “Quick Information” telephone service. This closure will save the system $655,000, more than half of the nearly $1 million budget reduction this year. The other $350, 000 in cuts will include layoffs, extending the staff computer replacement schedule and reducing the training budget.

    Thanks for reminding us! But the Fremont branch is not open on Sundays, so Saturday, 29 August, is the last day to check out at that branch.
