If you live in LA and like going to the library on Sunday afternoons, make sure to enjoy your visit this weekend. On April 11th, all Los Angeles Public Library branches will adjust their hours, and all of them will be regularly closed on Sundays. Quoting from the press release:

"The change in service hours is needed to enable the library to adjust to recent staff reductions resulting from a citywide early retirement program and a hiring freeze initiated by the City of Los Angeles to reduce its budget deficit."

I hope that all of you currently working in the library system have the hours, the benefits, and the wages that you want and deserve.

The City of San Jose is looking at cutting library hours to 3 days a week (from 5.5 days right now). So crazy! I don't know what's going to happen here.

That's horrible, Anna. Horrible. I hope your job is secure.
