The Orange Unified School District is eliminating the positions of 10 library assistants at its elementary schools in an effort to cut $1.1 million from its budget. As a result of the cutback, many of the 16 remaining library assistants, who run the 26 elementary school libraries, will each be responsible for operating two libraries instead of one. "The schools will have to do some sharing," Gretchen Hanson, assistant superintendent of educational services, said Thursday.

The City Council has endorsed a county library reorganization that would keep branches open longer hours by cutting 15 jobs. In approving the plan this week, council members acknowledged it could result in slower service. But library officials say it is the only way to keep the current hours and add to book and periodical collections. Under the plan, Ventura's three branches would lose one librarian and one library technician.

The Placentia Library Board of Directors will hold a public hearing at 7:45 tonight on plans to reduce the days and hours of operation for the city library. Library officials have proposed cutting the number of days the library is open from six to five and have set up two schedules, both of which include closing the library on Friday and Saturday. Under one proposal, the library would be open noon to 8 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
