Warren Memorial Library to Alter Hours in 2009

Because of a constrained budget, the Warren Memorial Library (WML) has decided to shutter its doors on Tuesdays beginning January 2, 2009 and has reconfigured its hours on other days.

Besides closing on Tuesdays (a day on which the library is now open from 2p-8p), the WML has shortened the Wednesday work day in 2009 from 10a-8p to 1p to 8p.

On the other hand, the hours on Monday and Friday have been expanded. Monday's hours, for example, have been expanded from 2p-8p to 1p-8p. And Friday's hours will change from 2p-6p to 10a-6p.

Saturday's hours (10a-2p) will remain unchanged.

Such schedule posturing at the WML comes on the heels of the announcement earlier this month that the library is parting company with the Reindeer Theatre Company in an effort to find a permanent, more profitable renter of its second-story auditorium.
