Due to budget cuts, the Huntington Beach Public Library will be open fewer hours beginning April 1st, 2010. This includes CLOSING the main library on Sundays, and substantially reducing the hours of the branch libraries.
The reduction in hours was part of a $95,000 cut to the Library's Fiscal Year 2009/2010 budget due to the continued economic downturn.
Let the City Council know that in these economic times the public library is more important than ever. Public libraries provide residents opportunities to better themselves, to find jobs, to find health information, to buy a first home, to learn English, or maybe just to escape in their favorite book or spend time with their family.
