Cohoes Public Library to Close Saturdays Starting July 4

From a press statement:
"The Cohoes Public Library will be closed Saturdays beginning July 4th.  “Due to reduced staffing levels, the library is unable to continue its six day per week schedule” explained Library Director Matthew Graff.   
Saturdays in the summer are statistically the least used days of the week.  Since the rest of the building is closed for the weekend, this should also result in energy savings.
The Library Board of Trustees took this action at its meeting on Monday, June 22.  The board agreed to evaluate the Saturday closures at the end of the summer and possibly switch to eliminating hours on a weekday to permit access to the Library on Saturday by students during the school year.  
Effective July 4, the Cohoes Public Library will be open Monday and Wednesday from 10 am until 8 pmTuesdayThursday and Friday from 10 am until 5 pm.  Fines are not charged for days the library is not open."
The Library is committed to providing a Summer Read program for the children of Cohoes. Beginning on Thursday, July 9 with "What's the Scoop?" with the cool chemistry of ice cream and continuing on successive Thursdays with Jim Snack, Magical Medieval Machines, the Cohoes Fire and Police Departments, an opportunity to turn everyday items into a computer keyboard and with a an awards ceremony. More details at the Library.
