Due to Town-wide budget cuts in Chelmsford for the upcoming year, the Main Library is reducing its operating hours by two hours each week.
The new Main Library hours are: Mon – Thu:
Fri – Sat:
9:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
The MacKay Library hours have not changed: Mon & Wed:
Fri & Sat:
10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
These hours will begin on Monday, June 30th, 2008. In addition to reduced hours, the Library also had to make cuts to the budgets for building maintenance, computer equipment, office supplies and travel. The Library is evaluating many of our operations and procedures, to see if further savings can be made in the areas of energy, materials, or staff time.
Library staff still strives to make serving our patrons our top priority, so please let us know if you have any suggestions for cost-savings or adjustments to the services we provide.
