With this increase, the Beacon Hill library branch will keep its current seven days/60 hours per week schedule:
- Monday – Thursday, 10:00 am – 8:00 pm
- Friday – Saturday, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
- Sunday 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Ballard, Broadview, Capitol Hill, Douglass-Truth, Greenwood, Lake City, Northeast, Rainier Beach, Southwest and West Seattle will also keep these hours.
Unfortunately, not all eliminated hours can be restored, and while Beacon Hill’s library hours have been saved, some other neighborhoods will still have the pain of serious cutbacks. The following branches will be reduced to a five days/35 hours per week schedule: Columbia, Delridge, Fremont, Green Lake, High Point, International District/Chinatown, Madrona-Sally Goldmark, Magnolia, Montlake, NewHolly, Northgate, Queen Anne, South Park, University and Wallingford.
