The north and south branch libraries will lose their evening hours, closing at 6 p.m. instead of 8 p.m. on the two days each week they had evening hours. The branches will also open an hour later, at 10 a.m., on Saturday, the same time they now open the other days they operate.

The north branch liberay will continue to be closed on Sunday and Friday and the south branch will continue to be closed on Sunday and Monday.

Library Director Mary Johns says the cuts will allow the library to more efficiently use reduced staff resources as the city tries to deal with its difficult budget situation.
