Library Hours Changing
January 1, 2016
The library will have new operating hours effective January 1, 2016. The Imlay City branch will close at 5 pm instead of 8 pm on Tuesdays, and the Attica branch will no longer be open on Saturdays.
The new schedule will be:
Imlay City Attica
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday Monday, Thursday
10 am – 8 pm 2 pm – 7 pm
Tuesday, Friday, Saturday Tuesday, Friday
10 am – 5 pm 10 am – 3 pm
These cuts are made necessary by the recent economic downturn, which has caused the library to lose over $60,000 a year from its operating income due to decreased tax revenue.
In 2009, just before the full extent of the worldwide fiscal crisis was evident, hours were expanded at both branches, with the addition of Tuesday evening hours at Imlay and Saturday openings at Attica. We have maintained these expanded hours for several years through a combination of other budget cuts and fund balance use, but unfortunately we cannot do so any longer.
We hope that eventually the economic situation will improve enough for us to restore at least some of these hours. Even with these cuts to our operating hours we are still open far more than any other library of our type in Michigan, and we are the only one maintaining two branches. More information about these budget cuts is available at the information desks or by clicking here.
