Berkeley Public Library Launches Community Survey on Branch Library Hours

January 15, 2013

Contact: Douglas Smith
Deputy Director

As part of the Fiscal Year 2014 /2015 budget planning process, Berkeley Public Library is exploring what options we may have to increase branch library hours. This has been a prominent budget priority in past years but was deferred while the library focused on the Branch Facilities Master Plan, the success of Measure FF, and everything that has gone into building and renovating four branch library buildings. Now, we are seeking community input on when the library should be open to the public. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Please fill out the short survey you will find online at or at all library locations in paper format from January 11 - 28, 2013. Thank you for your help!
