Effective Monday, March 4, the remaining seven Library locations will have restored hours, in the final Phase III announcement of our Promises Made, Promises Kept! campaign.

The affected branch locations include Holland, West Toledo, Heatherdowns, Main Library, Oregon, Sanger and Sylvania.

Below, we’ve compiled a COMPLETE listing of all expanded hours, with the newly affected branches.

“This complete listing of expanded hours demonstrates the community’s trust in the services we provide. We weren’t able to restore all hours, but we did our absolute best to expand hours where we saw the greatest need and demand in our community,” said Library Director Clyde Scoles. “These expanded hours will offer customers and their families more access to the highest levels of library services.”

Looking back at 2009, the reduction in state library funding, coupled with a drop in property tax valuations, caused a drastic $7.4 million shortfall. These state and local funding cuts had a dramatic effect on the Library system, which welcomed 2.7 million visitors in 2011. Library hours were slashed 27 percent. Night and weekend hours were dramatically decreased and only one branch (Sanger) remained open on Sundays – a time families seek out library services. Library programs for children were down almost 37 percent, and the number of registered borrowers went down almost 10 percent because we were not open when many need us.

“The state and local funding cuts left our hands tied and deeply impacted our Library system,” added Scoles. “It was crucial that we passed the levy and we did. However, state funding, which is about half of our budget, remains uncertain.”
