Friday Closure

Thursday, August 8, 2019

The Hubbard Free Library announced today it will close the library on Fridays beginning September 6, 2019, as part of efforts to reducing the operating deficit of about $18,000 it projects through June 20, 2020. 

In order to balance the budget, the Hubbard will have to increase revenues substantially and carefully monitor expenses.  As the year progresses, the Hubbard may need to consider additional cost saving measures including fewer staff, fewer open hours, a reduction in programs, fewer books, and other changes.
