Library Sunday Trial Ruled a Rousing Success

     Hate to say 'I told you so' but the completion of a trial program on Sunday hours at the Flower Library has been met with a tremendous response by Library users.
     The two temps hired to staff the desk are enthusiastic and helpful, with both hoping they can continue to work Sundays helping the public enjoy this treasure.

      Last year I began pushing the idea of Sunday hours after chatting with my Mom, who is an avid library user in NC where her local library sees Sunday's packed with families unable to get their during the week.
     The trial program came as a result of the Library Director offering to supervise while part timers were hired to wait on the public.
      Let's make it permanent.

The success of the programs should be satisfaction enough rather then telling everyone you told them so. I know this is a self serving blog, and, I am a supporter of most you do bit in my honest opinion, your self gratification cheapens it some. Keep up the good work, that is why u were elected.

You are forgetting one of the 10 Commandments......"Honor the Sabbath Day and keep it holy, 6 days shall thou labour and do all they work."
What has happened to our day of rest and worship?

I saw on the news tonight that it took several library staff three hours to make a Christmas tree display out of books. There is your union workers earning their money and putting the donations to good use.
