Have you been keeping up with our weekly facts about JCPL? We hope so! There's just two weeks left before we launch the Dec. 15-17 quiz. If you answer everything correctly, you will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Visa gift card and a $20 gift card to the Friend's Gift & Book Shop at the Belmar Library.
If you haven't been keeping up to speed, not to worry! You can access this week's facts and all previous week's facts at www.jeffcolibrary.org/DYK.html.
Due to significant budget challenges facing the Library, JCPL will be closed on Mondays beginning Jan. 3, 2011, including the Library's Call Center. We know this decision will inconvenience our patrons and local communities, but we stongly believe JCPL must balance our budget and live within our means.
The Library is facing a perfect storm of budget challenges, which will require us to reduce the operating budget by $3 million over the next two years. The Monday closure will allow us to begin to bring our expenses in line with projected revenues and ensure the future success and sustainability of JCPL.
The Online Library will continue to be available 24/7 and we'll be keeping the book drops open so you can return your materials on Mondays.
Hours for full service libraries, including Arvada, Belmar, Columbine, Evergreen, Golden, Lakewood and Standley Lake, will remain the same the remainder of the week. However, the community libraries (Conifer, Edgewater and Wheat Ridge), will have a change in hours.
