Dear City Council Members and City Manager,

I am watching the June 14 City Council meeting at home. I am very happy to see you considering adding hours to our Lincoln Library. I hope that by adding hours, you will also hire more staff to work those hours. You didn’t ask our city manager to look into the cost for hiring more staff.

The Library Advisory Board, the Friends of the Lincoln Library and the staff of the library have all agreed that more staff is a priority to the continued success of the services provided to our residents.

Currently, the Lincoln library is open 23 hours a week. Roseville has three libraries and each of the three are open 41 hours a week.

I hope you will consider adding more staff to the library. Thank you for all you do for the city and its residents.

Fran Neves, Lincoln
