What a Way to Celebrate 100 Years of Library Service

Pomona library to streamline services, reconfigure floor plan. (Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, 7/23/2012)

Excerpt: Pomona City Council members directed city administrators to find a way to avoid the closure and they in turn came up with about $400,000 to operate the library for the entire 2012-2013 fiscal year. 

This has prompted resident, business people and others to work on strategies to raise money for the library. 

The limited funds will require having a smaller staff consisting of hourly employees, Guter said. 

In turn the smaller staff requires consolidating library services on the main floor and its configuration must be more user friendly for both patrons and employees, he said. <

Along with several library directors from across the region, Guter walked the library with a library space planner to identify ways of consolidating operations. 

A final report from the planner will be used to create a plan for library services that could be presented to city leaders later this month, he said.
