At last, as micro-step in the right direction of INCREASING library services

Most of Salem is still grossly underserved by libraries, and most of the people who most need library access have the hardest time doing so — what with both libraries located within a mile of each other in the old downtown core area and West Salem — but at least we're finally reversing the starvation trend and increasing hours. 

Now, the fact that there's no transit service on Sunday is another matter entirely — so the increase should have been to open the main branch on Mondays before Sundays, since the buses run on Mondays.

But any progress away from the cut-cut-cut mentality that has been in place is still welcome.

Library Open Sunday!
Beginning THIS SUNDAY July 12, 2015 and for the first time ever, the main branch of the Library will be open Sundays FROM 1-5 PM over the summer months (just not the September holiday weekend). As part of this year's budget, Salem City Council and the Budget Committee expanded the Library's hours to include summer Sundays.
