Libraries Ready for Measure Y Funding Boost

Nov 26, 2016

Christmas came early for the Sonoma County Library system, which is now setting priorities for the additional sales tax revenues voters authorized by passing measure Y. First up: reopening on Mondays. 

In addition to meeting restoring hours and meeting some basic needs, Sonoma County Library Director Brett Lear says the revenue boost for the system will also support some new programs that he is eager to implement.

There is also discussion about reopening at least some of the library branches for limited hours on Sundays, but no timetable has been set for that.
