All ages use the Hendersonville Public Library. Many senior citizens use the computers. Students learn together in the study rooms. Young children participate in the reading programs. This library is experiencing record use this year, but the hours of operation are the same they were several years ago.

Currently the library is open only 40 hours per week, including only 4 hours between Friday and Sunday. It should be open Friday for eight 8 and Saturday for at least 6 hours.

As a resident of Hendersonville, I would like to see the Hendersonville Public Library open more, especially on the weekends. I understand that the library is operated by the county with help from the city. That city help, currently at $50,000 per year, needs to be increased to pay for additional hours of operation.

The Extend the Hours of the Hendersonville Public Library petition to Local Governments of Sumner County was written by Jamie Clary and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
