Navigating through a challenging budget change
The Crown Point Community Library Board of Trustees periodically reviews the budget strategy to ensure the library is being responsible and responsive to our community. At times, budgets face challenges and changes need to be made. Following the Monday, September 25, 2017 Public Hearing meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the 2018 budget which reflects a change in our budget strategy. The Crown Point Community Library (CPCL) identifies Integrity as one of our core values. This principle guides the library’s financial decision-making as the Trustees strive to be responsible with taxpayer’s money.
Beginning on October 16, 2017 the Winfield Library will have new hours. The new hours are as follows:
- Closed – Sunday and Monday
- 10-7 p.m. – Tuesday and Thursday
- 10-5 p.m. – Wednesday and Friday
- 10-2 p.m. – Saturday
Additionally, beginning January 7, 2018, the Crown Point Library will close on Sundays.
The library will continue to provide excellent service and programming for the communities it serves. The library will also focus on new and innovative ways to support and enhance the budget and continue to work with the Friends of the Crown Point Library.
The CPCL mission states, “The Crown Point Community Library is a community center for lifelong discovery”. The Crown Point and Winfield communities are enriched by library services, and remain one of the best resources for families to save money on entertainment and education. The library welcomes everyone, and with a library card, residents have FREE access to:
- Books, magazines, DVDs, music CDs and audiobooks
- Use of computers and high-speed internet
- Educational and cultural programs
- Databases and other digital materials that may be accessed from the comforts of home
- Use of meeting rooms for public and private events (some fees may apply)
As careful planning for the future is underway, the Library thanks you for your continued support for your library and its services.
