Central Library Sunday Hours

March 13, 1994

* I think both sides of the issue need to work together on a compromise. The Central Library weekend patron would be at a significant disadvantage by not having the services of the professional librarian. Volunteers, though well-meaning, will not be able to serve the clientele in the manner they deserve.

I also believe that the librarians who are insisting on being paid extra for weekend work should re-examine their priorities in the reality of these difficult fiscal times. Local government's financial capabilities are so stretched right now that just being able to keep this wonderful resource open on weekends is a terrific strain on the budget. Librarians should be trying to facilitate the process, not obstruct it.
