The Los Angeles County Library is expanding hours at 75 of its 87 community locations beginning July 1, officials announced Monday.
The days of quiet shelves of dusty books have been diminishing, as libraries now offer the use of computers for the Internet and other high-tech benefits. The shelves of traditional books are mostly still there.
“We understand that libraries have evolved and are being used by our customers in different ways,” said Skye Patrick, County Library director. “We wanted to ensure that our doors were open and staff was available to provide service that is needed in our communities.”
Officials said the extra hours will not add to their operating costs, thanks to “the creation of more efficient staffing models.”
