Newark library to close on Sundays

By Meenu Gupta

City of Newark staff implemented budgets cuts approved by Council to close a $3.4M budget deficit in January this year. Budget reductions have lead to elimination of Sunday library hours.

Beginning July 11, Newark Library will close on Sundays and no longer open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. It will remain open from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday; from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

The City had subsidized 4 1/2 hours per week at Newark Library, a branch of the Alameda County Library. Since the failure of Measure L, the City has slashed $3.5M from its budget. Following the declaration of a fiscal emergency on June 24, 2010, another utility users tax will be brought to Council this month for approval.
