Teton County Library is looking to adjust its weekend hours to better serve patrons. In a recent press release it said staff members conducted an hour-by-hour study in nonreserved areas of the library over the past four weeks and found that use was still high at closing time Saturdays, 2:30 p.m., and low at closing time Sundays, 6:30 p.m.
Staffers are proposing changing the closing time to 5 p.m. both weekend days, shifting more time to the busier Saturday afternoon and extending the library’s total hours of operation.
Library Director Dawn Jenkin also wants to create a video surveillance policy that “spells out staff access to video data and acceptable use of that data, especially as it pertains to patron privacy” in regard to security cameras that are installed around the facility.
Comments on both changes may be submitted at the library’s board meeting at noon July 18 or may be emailed to email@example.com by Friday.
