Reduced library hours begin this weekend

Starting tomorrow, all Los Angeles city libraries are closed on Sundays. The Central Library in Downtown is open 10 to 6 other days, and stays opens until 8 p.m. only on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The ALOUD programs and other evening events in the Mark Taper Auditorium will continue but with a separate entrance. Regional and branch library hours are after the jump; "The change in service hours is needed to enable the library to adjust to recent staff reducttons resulting from a citywide early retirement program and a hiring freeze initiated by the City of Los Angeles to reduce its budget deficit," says the library's email.
