Pomona Public Library Adjusts to a New Normal

Pomona Public Library, now open 20 hours a week.

One chapter closes, another begins at library.  (Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, 8/16/2012)

Excerpt: The library was set to close for a year or longer after Pomona's shaky finances took a $1.5 million hit due to an adverse court ruling, but after an outcry, $400,000 was taken from the street repair budget to keep the doors open until mid-2013. 

Efforts are under way to raise money to restore service and hours, including a parcel tax on the November ballot.
