Library Hours

In a year, our libraries may only be open 35 hours a week. Why? Each library is open 56 hours a week thanks to voters who, in 2002, approved Measure Q, which extended both libraries’ hours from 35 to 56 hours a week. Measure Q funds will run out in 2014 and the Walnut Creek City Council must take action to fund the additional 21 hours. WCLF is urging city council to look at how to fund the additional 21 hours so that they remain open 56 hours a week. Walnut Creek is a special place to live and work. We have extended library hours, wonderful open spaces, recreational pools, parks, ball fields, museums, arts programs and so much more. But they are at risk. The City will not have adequate money to fund these things unless they make drastic cuts or ask citizens to vote for a modest tax measure to increase City revenues. Libraries are an essential service. Contact the Walnut Creek City Council and tell them that the libraries and other programs and services are important to you and essential for Walnut Creek. Please join the Library Foundation and others who value the city’s cultural and recreational advantages.
