Sissonville Library to Reduce Hours of Operation

SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Changes are coming to the Sissonvile library.

According to a news release, Sissonville Library will reduce its hours of operations from 39 hours to 30. The library will now be closed on Fridays and Sundays.

Director Alan Engelbert says the library is unable to recruit replacements for the Sissonville staff, who recently resigned, until a plan is in place to deal with the significant loss of funding for 2014-2015.

“The reduction of hours at the Sissonville Branch has nothing to do with the process of planning system-wide reductions in library service, and no one should conclude that the Sissonville Branch is going to be closed as part of this process," Engelbert said. "This situation is happening because we had two staff members resign there, and we cannot recruit replacements until we know what the plan is for Sissonville."

Engelbert says the same thing can happen at any branch or department anywhere in the KCPL system right now.

Under the new hours operation, the Sissonville Branch Library will be:
Sunday: Closed
Monday: 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
Tuesday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Wednesday: Closed
Thursday: 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
Friday: Closed
Saturday: 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
