City of San Diego libraries open on a Monday for first time since 2007

760kfmb – “The city of San Diego’s 35 branch libraries opened on a Monday for the first time today in five years. Mayor Jerry Sanders’ office used part of a $17.8 million budget surplus in the current fiscal year to add to library hours, along with the amount of time recreation centers stay open. Those hours are set to expand further when the new fiscal year begins July 1. “For a lot of people, the library is a window to the world,” Sanders said. “With these additional hours, more residents will have more opportunities to study, learn and expand their horizons.”
