Use our libraries

President, League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo CountyJune 30, 2014 

The League of Women Voters congratulates county library director Chris Barnickel and his staff on their decision to expand library operating hours at branches throughout the county beginning Tuesday, (July 1). We are pleased that libraries will be open again on Mondays and that evening hours are being expanded.

We look forward to Sunday afternoon hours at some branches in the future. The League recognizes that public libraries are an integral part of the communities they serve, providing valuable information, entertainment and educational resources to enhance the lives of local residents. We support adequate funding to preserve and expand the library system, and we encourage residents of all ages to take advantage of the important services libraries offer.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
