You'll See Less: Pomona Public Library to Become a Shell of Its Former Self on September 4

reasons to visit the Pomona Public Library
Pomona library is brimming with treasures. (Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, 8/4/2012)
Here are the unfortunate facts of the situation.
The library as Pomona residents currently know it will close on Wednesday, August 15.
During a three-week reconfiguration, the basement, which houses all of the library's special collections, will be closed off, and self-check machines will be added to the main level.
How the library will have changed when it reopens on Tuesday, September 4.
  • A budget reduced by 75%.
  • Reduced staff of hourly workers.
  • Hours reduced to 20 per week.
Sadly, this last item isn't much of a change from the current schedule.
