Parker Restores Library Hours Cut In Budget Crunch
Libraries whose hours have been reduced for4 budgetary reasons will go back to their normal operational schedule, Mayor Annise Parker will announce tomorrow.
The city plans to to restore "library hours cut during [a] tough recession two years ago," according to a release from the mayor's office.
Many of the city's 37 or so libraries saw cutbacks in their operating hours as Parker tried to deal with a budget gap after taking office in 2010.
For instance, in July 2011 the city announced a 13- to 16-percent systemwide cut in library hours. Specific libraries got hit harder.
