Funding issues lead to changes at Tifton-Tift County Public Library
The Tifton-Tift County Public Library has announced they will be reducing their operational hours as a result of funding issues.
Library personnel say that funding has been flat for more than 10 years, but that they have been able to balance the budget with funds left over from the renovation that was finished in 2007.
However, those funds are drying up.
Acquisitions and personnel are the two biggest line items for the library according to a comment in the post.
The new hours start on July 1 and are as follows:
- Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
- Tuesdays and Thursdays: 9 a.m. - 7 p.m.
- Saturdays: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
- Closed Sunday
