A reduction in library hours has not led to a reduction in circulation, Norfolk Public Library Director Robin Glasser said. Due to budget constraints, the library now closes at 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, instead of 8:30 p.m.
Glasser said circulation for July, the first month the new hours took effect, was actually up by 3 percent from the same period last year. "I haven't heard one complaint" from patrons, Glasser said.
