Village Library Hours Change

Post Date:06/27/2019 4:54 PM
Change is necessary due to lack of sustainable funding

LOMPOC, CA, June 27, 2019 – Beginning on Saturday, July 6, the Village Library will have reduced hours of operation by four hours a week due to a lack of sustainable funding.

Starting July 6, the Village Library will be closed on Saturdays.

The Village Library will continue to be open Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Thursdays and Fridays, from noon to 6 p.m. 

The library will be closed Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.

Lompoc Public Library System staff apologizes for any inconvenience caused by these reduced hours at the Village Library. However, the change was deemed necessary as funding had run out from a generous, anonymous donor whose contribution enabled the Village Library to stay open on Saturdays for several years. Donations to the Village Library have decreased recently, and there is not a sustainable funding source to keep the additional hours. The Village Library is funded by Santa Barbara County, and is fully funded to be open 24 hours a week.

Lompoc Library staff encourage residents of Vandenberg Village and all Lompoc Valley residents to continue to visit the Lompoc Valley libraries, to take part in the programs, and to use the many resources available online at www.cityoflompoc.com/library
