SAN DIEGO — All of San Diego’s 36 library branches will re-open by September and overall branch hours across the system will return to pre-pandemic levels by next June, head librarian Misty Jones said Tuesday.
The city more than doubled the number of branches open to the public for in-person services from 12 to 26 on July 6. Jones said the 10 remaining branches are slated to re-open in either mid-September or late September.
Editor’s Note: Good article by Dave, who covers the library. I am a retired librarian from SDPL, working for 15 years there. Maybe some of those benefited positions will be at Central, to help save government documents. See more at my page about the documents’ collections:
