Changes to Open Days in November: more Saturdays! …but no more Thursdays

Dear Library visitors,

We are delighted to announce expanded Saturday hours coming in November, with at least three Saturdays per month … and sometimes four … offered by our hosting collaborative starting this month! These Saturday hours are offered by Monica Westin (most 1st and 3rd Saturdays), and Jay Bartguy (2nd and 4th Saturdays), both longtime contributing members of the Library’s hosting collaborative. Woo hoo!

At the same time it is with some regret that we announce the end (for now) of Library Thursdays. For the past two years, Thursday’s public open hours have consistently been the least well attended of any public offerings. As a result our current Thursday Host, David Wiegleb, is reallocating his energy to supporting the work of the Prelinger Archives, the film archives, which is the Library co-founders’ other major project. We are grateful to David for all his many ongoing contributions to the total project sphere. Any future emerging demand for public hours on Thursdays would reshape the calendar again.
