Fort Myers, FL: September 30, 2009 – Library System to Change Operating Hours

 

Beginning Monday, October 19, 2009 new hours of operation will go into effect at the Lee County Library System.

 

According to Library Director, Sheldon Kaye, “Although there are modest reductions in operating hours at the regional and mid-sized libraries, we are pleased to be able to offer the same number of overall system wide hours of operation that we have in previous years. The change in hours was necessary to support the opening (December 5) of the new Northwest Regional Library without an increase in staffing levels. “
