Fewer hours to peruse the stacks on Thursdays

Kitsap Regional Library is scaling the Bainbridge branch’s open hours down to just four hours on Thursdays starting Jan. 2.

The three-hour reduction is part of system-wide cost-cutting measures to balance KRL’s ’09 budget.

Here’s the full weekly rundown starting at the first of the year….
Monday-Wednesday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Thursday, Saturday, Sunday: 1 to 5 p.m.

Fridays: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The reductions to the Bainbridge library and other branches will bring a net savings of about $140,00 to the library system, according to a KRL press release.

Research shows that Thursday is the day with the fewest visitors, according to KRL.
