Budget down, circulation up

Posted August 17, 2007 11:18 PM


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.

  1. Americans don't complain about anything. Look at mbta parking increase as an example.
