Due to budget cuts, the Loussac Library will be reducing hours. Starting January 2, Loussac will close an hour earlier at 8pm Mondays-Thursdays. Neighborhood Libraries will maintain their 2017 hours.
“We looked at all of the ways we could absorb this year’s budget cuts with the least impact to our community,” says Library Director Mary Jo Torgeson. “Unfortunately, after many years on a shrinking budget, there is nothing left to cut but hours.”
The Library was on track to close on Sundays as well, but a last-minute Assembly budget amendment by Assembly Members Constant, Rivera and Petersen restored funding to keep the Loussac open on Sundays through the first half of the year. The Assembly will look into funding to restore hours at Loussac Library when they conduct their First Quarter Budget Revision this spring. Other cuts made for 2018 include reductions to materials spending and technology.
