Library to be open an additional day

By MARSHA LLOYD, Ridgecrest Branch Librarian

Library to be open an additional dayThe Ridgecrest Branch Library will be open an additional day each week starting on Nov. 8. Hours on Fridays will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the remainder of this fiscal year.

The Kern County Library management and staff are very pleased to be able to offer increased access to the services and collections of the public libraries!

In late August, the Kern County Board of Supervisors approved a plan to open all Kern County Library locations an additional day through June 30, 2014. This is being done with extra help staff hours. The extra help staff has been found and is now in training as needed for each branch to support the additional hours open to the public.

The Ridgecrest Branch Library will have the following weekly hours through June 30, 2014: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
