Changes to Library Hours

West Florida Public Library announced today they will be reducing the operational hours of the library system. Changes will begin Monday, October 1, 2012 and include all branches within the system with the exception of WFPL’s Genealogy Branch.

“Libraries are the heart and soul of our community. With budget cuts and a higher cost of doing business, the Library Board of Trustees felt it was important to keep all of our locations open and available.” said Darlene Howell, Acting Library Administrator. “Keeping our libraries open is important and we wanted to make choices that had the least impact on the people we serve.”

Earlier this year Escambia County Commissioners announced a 5% budget cut to the library system due to State mandated Medicaid costs. The service impact of the County’s reduction will result in reduced staffing, resources, and hours.
