Friday opening time at Clearwater Library to shift one hour

The request resulted in a survey held at the end of 2015 to gather public input

Hours at Clearwater Library on Fridays are being changed from 1 – 7 p.m. to 12 – 6 p.m.

The shift was approved by the Thompson-Nicola Regional District board of directors during a meeting held Feb. 18.

During the library system’s strategic planning process, the public and library staff had requested that hours be changed to better match when people want to use some TNRD libraries.

The request resulted in a survey held at the end of 2015 to gather public input on changing the hours.

The survey results for the Clearwater Library were clear, with 69.1 per cent of respondents wanting the time change on Fridays.

The TNRD board also approved changing the hours for the Lytton Library from Saturdays, 10 – 2, to Tuesdays, 2- 6.

The survey results for the Barriere Library were ambiguous, although it was clear that residents there would like the library to entertain other options for opening hours.

A public meeting will be held in Barriere to get better feedback.
