Both branches of the Everett Public Library will be closed Monday for the Labor Day Holiday and when they do open on Tuesday, it will be under reduced hours for at least 3 months. The Everett Library Board reduced hours, trimmed staff and eliminated the bookmobile as part of Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson’s Budget Deficit Reduction Plan. Below is a list of the new operating hours for the two branches as posted on the Library’s website. There’s also a request for feedback so the Everett Library Board can evaluate the impacts the cuts will have on patrons.
The Main Downtown Everett Library and Evergreen Branch had been open…
|Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday||10:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.|
|Thursday, Friday, Saturday||10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.|
|Sunday||1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.|
New Library Hours Beginning September 2nd…
Hours at both the Main Library and Evergreen Branch will be reduced beginning September 2. The change is in response to staffing reductions brought about by the City of Everett’s budget cuts. Although we have tried to maintain as many hours as possible, we recognize that there may be impacts we have not thought about. Therefore, the Board of Trustees has voted that the new schedule be evaluated after three months. During this period, from September through the end of November, please address any comments or suggestions to Eileen Simmons, Director at ESimmons@everettwa.gov, or 425-257-8022.
