All 73 City Libraries Re-Open Weekday Evenings as of October 15th!
Restoring hours on Monday and Wednesday evenings and Friday mornings starting October 15 marks the second phase in a series of four restorations of library services happening over four years. Measure L, a ballot initiative passed by voters last March, is providing the funds to restore library services. The operating hours at the City’s 73 libraries were slashed to their lowest level in the library’s 140-year history in August 2010, following cuts to the City budget. Voter approved Measure L gradually restores library service hours to the 2009 level over four years by increasing the Library’s share of City funding without new taxes. Last year, in the first phase of Measure L, all libraries re-opened on Mondays. In 2014, the final phase of Measure L, nine libraries will re-open on Sundays.
