YES – The Libraries are open on the 4th of July!

A few questions have come up about Library hours for the upcoming holiday weekend.
Due to the short duration of the LS and BL summer programs the Libraries have traditionally been open full summer hours during the 4th of July holiday.
As always, it is good to track actual activity in the libraries to help us better plan for future hours of service.
SO…starting at 5 pm this weekend and through Sunday at closing – please record gate counts, user activity and comments, and any other observations. Feel free to comment on this blog post – or contact me directly with any comments or observations.
Thanks. 🙂
