Redwood City Public Library to be Closed
for a Half Day This Friday
Redwood City, CA - November 29 , 2004 - This Friday, December 3, 2004 the Redwood City Public Library will be closed to the public for half of the day. The scheduled half-day closure will enable library staff to attend a comprehensive in-service training program. This training session is designed to motivate and educate the more-than 40 members of the Library staff about techniques for continuing high-quality customer service during difficult budget times.
The Downtown library and the Fair Oaks library will be open to the public from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday, December 3.
"December 3 is an important day for library staff. This half-day closure will bolster our abilities and provide our staff with the tools necessary for continuing our standards of excellence," said Dave Genesy, library director.
Online library services will remain in service and can be accessed through the Internet at www.redwoodcity.org/library; book drops for returning materials will remain open and items can be returned to either library location, as usual. All materials received by the library during this short closure will reflect the December 3 return date. For further information and to have any questions or concerns answered, the public may call 780-7026.
The Redwood City Public Library sponsors many free programs for children, families, and adults and helps our community to “understand the past, prepare for the future, and thrive in the present.” More information about library events and services is available on the library’s home page at www.redwoodcity.org/library, by calling 780-7026, or by picking up a Library events calendar in any Redwood City library.
