Mayor Emanuel To Re-Open Libraries On Monday Mornings Year Round
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Library Commissioner Brian Bannon announced that the Chicago Public Library is adopting a flexible staffing plan that will allow all 76 neighborhood branches to offer full-day service on Mondays after children return to school in the fall without increasing the operating budget.
“By taking a new and creative approach to staff libraries, not only will young children, parents and adults be able to take advantage of services and resources that our community libraries offer for 8 hours on Mondays, we have an opportunity to broaden the array of services we offer,” said Mayor Emanuel. “We are not only re-establishing Monday morning hours during the school year, we are honoring the promise that the Library offers to the children and adults who depend on it.”
