Libraries Seek to Reopen 12 Branches on Sundays

From today's Fairfax Extra:

The county library system is asking the Board of Supervisors to restore Sunday hours at 12 community branches that currently are not open because of budget cuts.

Supervisor Penelope A. Gross (D-Mason) said at Monday's board meeting that the library board is asking the supervisors to spend about $895,000 a year to pay for the branches to open from noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

The branches are Dolley Madison in McLean, Great Falls, Herndon Fortnightly Library, John Marshall in the Alexandria area, Kings Park in Burke, Kingstowne in the Alexandria area, Lorton, Martha Washington in the Alexandria area, Patrick Henry in Vienna, Richard Byrd in Springfield and Thomas Jefferson and Woodrow Wilson, both in the Falls Church area.
