Use Surplus Funds to Restore Sonoma County Library Hours

I urge our supervisors to address the unprecedented funding crisis in our county libraries and provide $1.2 million (just 9%) of the current record budget surplus to restore Monday hours. Our wealthy county has seen library hours slashed from 70 per week in 1981 to 52 in 2011, then down to just 40 hours a week this year. It is inconsistent with the values of our education-loving citizens to deprive our community of this vital public service.
