Help keep your library open more than 35 hours a week

Sign The Friends of the Seattle Public Library‘s Facebook petition to preserve library hours at the Beacon Hill branch.

If Mayor Nickels’s proposed budget plan is adopted by the City Council unchanged, the library’s hours will be reduced to:

  • 1pm to 8pm Mondays and Tuesdays.
  • 11am to 6pm Wednesdays and Thursdays.
  • Closed Fridays.
  • 11 am to 6pm Saturdays.
  • Closed Sundays.

More information about the 2010 Proposed Budget’s effect on the Operations Budget (collections and hours) and Capital (major building maintenance) is available on The Seattle Public Library’s website.

The Friends of the SPL want to hit 2000 signers on the petition today. It’s not out of reach at 1483 petitioners so far. Add your signature here.
